Sonia -- Film Description:
"Related with great tenderness, Sonia is a one-hour drama on the mental and emotional sufferings of a victim of Alzheimer's disease, on the course of this illness, and on the qualities—courage, love and compassion—that enable one to endure such extremes. Brilliantly acted by Kim Yaroshevskaya as Sonia and Paule Baillargeon as her daughter, Roxanne, this is a powerful discussion-starter on Alzheimer's, especially for those close to a person afflicted by what is often considered 'the worst of all diseases.'"
