Lost down Memory Lane is the first documentary, about living with Alzheimer's, as seen through the eyes of the people who suffer from it. The characters live together in an apartment called Iduna, under constant supervision and care. Iduna is a somewhat unusual department of The Bijster, a nursing home for people with dementia in Essen, near Antwerp, Belgium. The eight residents of Iduna are in - scientifically considered - the first phase of the disease: flurries of lucidity, forgetfulness and falling into oblivion alternate constantly.
