When a woman with advanced dementia is discovered wandering in a park, she is taken to the memory unit of a posh private nursing home. A DNA test shows that she was the subject of a famous missing person case thirty-seven years earlier. Her husband was accused of killing her and after years of suspicion, he committed suicide, leaving their two children presumed orphans. When the now adult children arrive looking for answers, she can tell them nothing about where she’s been or what she has done. She doesn’t even know who they are. For those adult children, wounds that have never healed are reopened. A tabloid TV show is sending cameras to capture the reunion.
