Filmmaker Yuka Sekiguchi returned home to Japan in 2010 after spending 29 years in Australia. She has been looking after her mother, Hiroko who has Alzheimer's at home ever since. Soon Yuka had her own experiences with death. First she had to under go surgery to replace both hips. Then her mum lost consciousness on four occasions unexpectedly and was taken to the hospital each time. Then her friend in Sydney was diagnosed with bladder cancer. The final blow was losing her Japanese friend to cancer.

Can we really control how we die? Are there any options in dying? These questions in mind, Yuka embarks upon a journey of 'dying'. This results in "EVERYDAY IS ALZHEIMER'S THE FINAL ~ Death Becomes US". The film is the final installment of the "EIA" series, yet is also stands alone.

Despite the serious nature of the subject, the film is humorous and thought provoking.
