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.'"
