Alzheimer’s is taking Irene Radford further and further away from the small, rag-tag universe of people who inhabit her ever-devolving world

Navigating life with Alzheimer’s is a bizarre and endlessly changing process, one where everybody seems to get lost somehow

It’s a shifting world where the past becomes the present, the present becomes the past, and the future remains a terrifying mystery

Meanwhile, life must move on

Luvie, Irene’s daughter and primary caretaker, must pick up the pieces of her failed marriage

Irene’s in-home health worker, Dolly, must navigate the complex relationship with her adult son, Dylan

Leonard, Irene’s hairdresser, must grapple with the pain of saying goodbye

The further Irene drifts into memory, the closer these relative strangers become inextricably connected to one another

Set in the American South, Distance explores questions of memory, mystery, identity, relationship and the vulnerability of change

It is a Southern drama full of humor, heart and ferocity
