Alice At The Store
Directed by Christopher Woon-Chen
In ALICE AT THE STORE, 92-year old Alice Eng goes everyday to the pub across the street, which used to be her store. Her family struggles with the realities of providing for her care as she ages and her dementia progresses. All she really wants is to be at home.
