Caris' Peace is a documentary that tells the story of Caris Corfman, an actress whose brain operation robbed her of her ability to learn, recall, and recite lines. Unlike dementia sufferers who gradually lose awareness of their deteriorating condition, Corfman was swiftly forced to recognize that her career was over.
