Scottish songwriter Edwyn Collins, who suffered a stroke so severe that it effectively deleted the contents of his mind, is the focus of this documentary. Poetic and ultimately uplifting, the film is narrated by Edwyn and his wife Grace, who helped pull him back to life after he lost all language and could only say several things: yes, no, Grace Maxwell, and The Possibilities are Endless. His journey of recuperation as he engages with the world again and experiences wonder anew, celebrates how our lives are shaped by love, music and language.
