Alice is becoming more and more forgetful. Her daughter Mandy is always on hand to help out, but is starting to feel the strain. One day a long-forgotten photograph stirs a memory and lures Alice back to the Crown Hotel in Blackpool, where she hopes for the chance to dance in the tower ballroom one last time. But when mother and daughter reach Blackpool, nothing is quite how Alice remembers, and she finds herself getting lost in the past.

One Last Waltz is a beautifully written portrayal of a family coming to terms with complications caused by Alzheimer’s disease. By turns sparkling with wit and heart-wrenching in its honesty, it’s filled with vital and compassionate insight into the sufferings accompanying a disease that has blighted the landscape for so many.
