Edward Hardy is 93, lives in a nursing home, and suffers from dementia and depression. Sam Kinsella, one of Mr. Hardy’s care givers and the narrator of this video, learns of Edward’s prior life as a jazz pianist.

After Sam arranges for a keyboard to be brought in, Ed’s outlook appears to transform. Later, the home holds a concert featuring Ed and his old jazz combo.
