Memory and reality collide in Where Do Lilacs Come From, a gorgeously shot, aching short film that attempts to see life from the perspective of an Alzheimer's sufferer as he tries to understand the world around him while his past constantly intrudes.

Director and writer Matthew Thorne tries to understand what goes on in the mind of someone with Alzheimer's amidst the flood of memories from a different time. What he creates is something both wrenching and empathetic.
