Abstract

All I Ask of You is a dramatic feature film script that showcases the dynamics between people who struggle with types of dementia and their friends and family. Although most stories that cover dementia focus on the victim, this story chooses to focus on the people closest to those victims. The story takes on tough decisions that those closest to the disease have to make due to the debilitating affect it has on victim. The medical community doesn’t know very much about dementia. We know there is a particular dementia gene that is hereditary, but we don’t know how to stop it from escalating. We know that once the disease hits a certain point, the victim becomes unable to live on her own and take care of themselves. Do we devote our lives to taking care of the only person who ever took care of us and loves us unconditionally? Do we leave them and follow our dreams when the opportunity comes to us? Is there a right decision or a right way to handle this disease?
