You love your partner in sickness and in health. That’s easy enough to do in theory, but what does it really mean to carry through on that promise?

Acclaimed Thai director Sivaroj Kongsakul made this poetic and moving short film about the golden years of one couple’s life.

The wife is senile and needs help remembering her children’s names, but the husband stands by her side throughout.

It’s effortless for him, but it’s a real and powerful demonstration of what it means to love.
