A touching portrait of commitment, love, and duty in a couple’s aging years

Cecil finds himself alone in a giant house that has fallen into disrepair ever since Carl, his partner of 43 years, was diagnosed with advanced dementia and admitted to a nursing home. Cecil reads us a letter he wrote requesting guardianship of Carl and outlining his plans to bring him home. Beautifully shot and poignant, Cecil and Carl is the story of two men, four decades of love – and simple, tender tenacity in the face of advanced dementia.
