Lino Settembre and his wife Chicca lead a tranquil married life without any serious problems. They are satisfied with their careers. He’s the sports editor at the Messenger and she’s a professor of medieval languages at the Università Gregoriana. The only true disappointment in their 25 years of marriage has been the lack of children. They used the situation to strengthen their marriage instead of letting it become a real problem. But now, in a totally unexpected way, they’re presented with a big worry: Lino is having a really serious memory problem that is staring to worsen and interrupt their daily routine and activities both at home and at work. At first both Lino and Chicca decide to laugh it off but the problem manifests itself more and more until, after careful attention and in-depth medical exams, they receive the diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease, that’s destroying his brain. Despite the disease, Chicca decides to stay with Lino at any cost all throughout.
