“FORGOTTEN DETROIT” centers around Ben Riesen, a young therapist at the Glenview Hills Retirement Home in Detroit, MI. Still reeling from a break up he should’ve brushed off months ago, he trudges to work at the inadequately staffed retirement home for patients in the late stages of Alzheimer’s disease. One morning, one of his patients goes missing from the home, and Ben must search through the ruins of Detroit as she follows memories long faded. But as he stumbles upon her, his own troubles with women take center stage. Lost in a rotting factory, as well as his patient Gracie’s memories, Ben starts to wonder if it’s worth being stuck in the past…
