This is a wonderful short story by Alice Munro, which was transformed in a movie. Both of them are really great. Munro's narrative style is deep and full of details. Her characters are intense. The narrative is about a woman with Alzheimer who goes to a clinic to treat her problem. There, she has contact to another man and they perhaps fall in love.
