Five million Americans suffer from Alzheimer's disease and dementia—many of them alone in nursing homes. A man with a simple idea discovers that songs embedded deep in memory can ease pain and awaken these fading minds. Joy and life are resuscitated, and our cultural fears over aging are confronted.
Alive Inside is truly an inspirational tale of a committed humanitarian, a strong reminder of the joy of life, and how music can enhance it.
