Legendary country artist Glen Campbell embarks on a farewell tour while struggling with Alzheimer's. He gets incredible support from his family, including his wife who helps him with just about every aspect of his life, and his young adult children, many of them in the touring band. At the center of it all is Glen, his memory failing but able to tap into the place where music is made. Incredibly moving film, even if you don't like country music.
