A poster of documentary “Please Remember Me”
Every day, people see 88 years old Feng and 87 years old Lou going out hand in hand to practice Tai Chi. Hardly could anybody tell that Lou has has had Alzheimer’s disease. Ten years ago, Lou went out on an afternoon for a haircut and didn’t return at dinnertime. Feng anxiously waited her at the gate, only to find Lou taken home by the police. Over the years, Lou has forgotten almost everyone but firmly believes that Feng is the one she is going to spend the rest of her life with.
