Joe and Anne’s relationship has finally found the sweet spot and they are looking forward to what retirement brings. But time is not on their side. Inexplicably, Joe  a gifted architect  finds himself losing things, making miscalculations, blanking parts of his day. As Joe’s condition worsens, he and Anne face the agonising question: what is the point of no return?


'The central characters are real and convincing, their lives recognisable and relatable, the situations they find themselves in have the echo of truth. It confronts an important topic and is sincerely told.' Good Reading
