Veteran soap opera actress, Lainey Allen (Crystal Chappell) is finding it harder to remember her lines. She decides not to renew her contract, and moves with her partner, Eva (Jessica Leccia), to the beach. The move highlights small changes in Lainey’s personality and mild depression. When Lainey starts to forget more than can be attributed to stress, Eva insists on seeing a doctor. A Million Happy Nows chronicles Lainey and Eva’s changing relationship as they deal with the diagnosis of Lainey’s Early-onset Alzheimer’s and the prospect of an indomitable woman’s future of dependence on the woman who was once in awe of her, became everything to her, and will now look after her.
