Diminished Capacity 2008

Cooper is a Chicago journalist with post-concussion memory loss. His mother wants help moving Uncle Rollie* who's facing his own fading memory* into a care home. Cooper's boss tells him to take a few days* so Cooper drives home. Rollie doesn't want to move* and his salvation may be a rare baseball card of a 1908 Chicago Cub. Maybe they can sell it in Chicago for enough for Rollie to live at home with help. Cooper teams up with Charlotte* his recently-divorced high-school flame* and her son; they take Rollie to a memorabilia market. Rollie insists on keeping the card in his pocket* while more than one rascal wants to divest the old man of his treasure. Can the underdogs carry the day?
