• Wenn dein Vater sich nicht mehr an dich erinnert, hört er dann auf, dein Vater zu sein?
  • One week after a seemingly harmless car accident, a 45-year-old man wakes up with total amnesia.The doctors and family are baffled, as there is no evidence of brain damage or other physical causes.Sixteen years later, filmmaker Rick Minnich returns to his native California with a camera in search ofanswers to why his father\'s memory still hasn\'t returned. He talks with his family members, and reconstructsin detective-story fashion the period of time before and the years following the accident. Alongthe way, Rick not only discovers many deep-rooted emotions that had never been dealt with, butalso uncovers startling facts that shed a very different light on his father\'s memory loss. Was he reallystruck by a horrible affliction, or was he perhaps trying to escape from a life he could no longer lead?
