Scrabble World Champion, Austin Michaels knew over 200,000 words. Then he was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease. Since then Austin has been in a race against time to document his memories, his greatest achievements before they fade from his mind and the world forever. Once the toast of the board game world, Austin’s life was full of bottomless champagne and endless parties. But now it’s Nescafe and doctor’s appointments as he spends his time searching for the right words.
