The singer-songwriter Edwyn Collins suffered a massive stroke, which should have ended his career. This film tells the story of his return.
After a career as an internationally acclaimed lyricist, Collins lost all language and was only able to say two phrases: ‘The possibilities are endless’ and ‘Grace Maxwell’. The film is narrated by Edwyn, trapped inside his devastated mind, as well as his wife Grace, the woman who pulled him back to life. It isn’t just a story of determination against all odds; it is an intimate and life-affirming journey of rediscovery.
