Haunted by memories of his childhood in Baghdad, Abdullah suffers from dementia and struggles to communicate with his British-born daughter, Leilah. As his mind wavers between his past and his unfamiliar present, he no longer remembers the life he has lived in London for the past 60 years or the fluent English he has spoken. Leilah, who only speaks English, needs one last moment of connection with her father before she also fades from his memory.
