The movie sensitively and realistically follows the progression of Glen Campbell's experience with Dementia, including some difficult behaviors that aren't always talked about.
In 2011, music legend Glen Campbell set out on an unprecedented tour across America. He and his family planned for it to last 5 weeks. Instead it went for 151 amazing sold out shows over a year and a half. What made this tour extraordinary was that Glen had recently been diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease. He was told to hang up his guitar and prepare for the inevitable. Instead, Glen and his wife went public with his diagnosis and announced that he and his family would set out on a 'Goodbye Tour.' The film chronicles this amazing journey as he and his family attempt to navigate the wildly unpredictable nature of Glen's progressing disease using love, laughter and music as their medicine of choice.
