Sigrid & David
Ten years into retirement in the college town of Madison, Wisconsin, Sigrid and David try to navigate their future. Sigrid is worried that it’s only a matter of years before she develops Alzheimer’s disease, like her mother. She begins a mission to stave off the disease through healthy eating, exercise, and managing depression. Sigrid is also driven to reduce the amount of stuff they’ve accumulated, so that her children will not have the job once she’s gone. David, who is not plagued by the same worry, would rather retreat inwardly to revisit past intellectual pursuits that include re-reading books he read in college. He doesn’t want to exercise either. Sigrid and David are both in the WRAP study; she’s a test subject and he’s in the control group.
