About the film
In an adventurous three-year journey across four continents and through 11 countries, Teun Toebes takes you on a disarming and impressive quest around the world in which he looks for answers for the future. Together with his good friend and filmmaker Jonathan de Jong, he explores how dementia is dealt with in other countries and what we can learn from each other to make the future more beautiful and inclusive. As the number of people with dementia doubles in the next 20 years, this quest is not a question, but a necessity.
