Lost On Arrival


After retiring, a man wants to return to the Caribbean island where he once lived. But advancing dementia ruins his plans. He moves there but never really arrives.

After retiring a man wants to return to the Caribbean island of Curaçao where he spent his working live. The preparations are going well: he sells his house and all his possessions are put into boxes. But then his health fails him. Dementia affects his memory. Except for the opening scene, all we see is the view from a tropical veranda. At the same time we hear the man having telephone conversations with his son, in which he gradually acknowledges that he is losing his grip on reality.
