The visual effects include the Datamosh effect, which is normally used by memes on TikTok or Instagram. The special design language also makes the topic accessible to younger people who have had little or no contact with Alzheimer's patients.

The film is also the continuation of the successful collaboration between AFI and BBDO. In 2018, the agency visualized how Alzheimer's patients experience their environment in four multiple award-winning billboards: As a mismatched puzzle that still has similarities to the person they originally loved, but is no longer recognizable as such, no matter how hard you try.
