After being diagnosed with the early stages of Alzheimer's, Anna, a 33-year-old British control freak, goes to Vienna with the hope of treating her disease and escaping the sympathy and pity. She seeks the help of a rude Austrian doctor who is more interested with her accepting her disease than treating it, but Anna is determined and enrols in a language school after reading that speaking an additional language could stop the growth of Alzheimer's. There she meets Cecile, a young, slightly odd, Turkish girl. Preoccupied with her treatment Anna is uninterested in meeting new people and finds Cemile to be completely irritating. Anna is about to realise, however, that she's going to need more than her own determination to truly save herself.
