Alice falls off her bike at spin class and sustains a concussion. When she comes to, she has lost 10 years of memories. It is 2008, but she is still living like it is 1998.
Here’s what Alice has forgotten:
• The births of her three children,
• The decline of her marriage,
• Her transformation into a supermom, and
• Her physical transformation (Alice is fit).
For Alice, forgetting gives her a new lease on life. But for others? The memory loss gives them back the Alice they used to love. It’s a win-win.
