Storyline

Fifteen years ago the theater and film actress and Yale drama graduate Caris Corfman's life was hijacked. The removal of a brain tumor left her without short-term memory. Caris was once an actress whose talent presumed a lifetime career, whether starring opposite Ian Holm in the dramatic film Dreamland or in the original Broadway cast of Amadeus with Ian McKellen and Tim Curry. Now she can't remember a line of dialogue, a stage direction, or an entrance or exit cue the very foundation of her profession. The simplest dance step or lyric of a song eludes her, though she trained in dance and music since childhood. The documentary is the story of Caris' resolute effort to reclaim her life in theater and return to the world that she loved. No one with short-term memory loss has ever attempted a return to the stage. The day of Caris Corfman's surgery was the day she lost her ability to make new memories. She had four brain surgeries followed by years of twilight existence. Life was lived ... Written by Anonymous
