SASHA’S TRIAL – Sasha struggles with anxiety and her Grandad is living with dementia. Even so, they share a touching closeness, full of patience and loving despite the differences in their ages and outlooks. Together they explore the challenges of their medical conditions and the subject of clinical trials. As Grandad’s health deteriorates, however, and Sasha struggles to make sense of this, her confusions threaten to overwhelm her. Faced with decisions she now must make alone, what hopes can Sasha’s future hold?

Created by Ziggy’s Wish 2015 with Greymatter Films UK and Shred Productions for NIHR Clinical Research Network: Greater Manchester – as part of their public and patient engagement project TRIALS OF THE MIND, designed to encourage dialogue and awareness around clinical trials, dementia and mental health.
