Els and Louis live for more than 40 years in a nice house in Rotterdam. Els has Alzheimer’s disease identified and when her illness deteriorates, they decide to sell their house. They move to a nursing home. Soon living conditions grow unbearable for Louis, so he by himself moves again. After 50 years of marriage Louis has to leave Els behind in the nursing home. For the first time in his life Louis lives alone. He visits his wife on a daily basis and sometimes he walks from his new apartment to the nursing home. After some time he starts living with a new partner. Louis feels guilty continuing his life and leaving Els behind.
