Documentary follows activist Dan Cohen's promotion of music as an effective tool for individuals suffering from memory loss.

Social worker Dan Cohen is the founder of the Music & Memory nonprofit organization, performing battle against an American healthcare system favoring profits over individual concerns by promoting musical therapy for individuals affected by Alzheimer's and similar diseases. Examples such as Alzheimer's patient Marylou expressing long-dormant feelings of happiness upon hearing The Beach Boys' I Get Around are presented alongside interviews with music industry professionals and doctors to bolster his case.
