The Little Girl in the Radiator: Mum Alzheimers and Me
"Martin Slevin's mum is an active and fiercely independent woman who runs her own business and brooks no nonsense from Martin and his father. But when her husband dies everything crumbles, and she becomes listless and forgetful. Eventually, she is diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease and Martin puts his own life on hold to care for her. Together, they embark on a long journey through dementia. The destination is never in doubt -- but it's a comical and unpredictable ride, as she watches TV with a frozen goose, holds sing-songs with an imaginary Irish band and insists on pinning all of Martin's socks to the wall. And all the time, a question nags away at him: just who is the little girl in the radiator, with whom his mum has urgent, whispered conversations each day?
CAD-Brent, an original idea by Irish in Britain.
