Director's Statement

'Broken Wing' takes a honest look at the struggle a disease can have on not just the person diagnosed, but on the caretaker as well. For Alice, she must decide if she has the courage to officially move Patrick, her husband into a facility where he can receive the proper care that he needs, or to keep him home, where the situation has spiraled out of control.

 

This film resonates on a personal level after seeing the affects dementia had on my family. It's a 7 minute snippet into just a few of the struggles people face every day with this disease.  

 

'Broken Wing' shows that even though a life altering disease can have a devastating impact on a marriage, the deep connection that lies underneath Alice and Patrick will always be there.
