Angelo Leddo, a former hitman for organized crime, agrees to one last killing, despite his recently developed Alzeimher's disease. Upon killing the first victim, he learns that his second victim is twelve year old prostitute Bieke. Leddo refuses to kill her, and his employer then arranges to have Leddo killed. But Leddo outwits his would-be assassin and starts to hunt down those who hired him to kill Bieke. Parallel to this, the police, lead by detectives Vincke and Verstuyft, are running their own investigation, as bodies pile up and powerful men attempt to conceal their connection to child prostitution.

[[redirect:Film/TheAlzheimersCase]]''The Alzheimer Case'' (aka ''The Alzheimer Affair'', ''The Memory of a Killer'', and ''De Zaak Alzheimer'') is a film based upon the novel ''De Zaak Alzheimer'' by Jef Geeraerts.

Upon killing the first victim, he learns that his second victim is twelve year old prostitute Bieke. Leddo refuses to kill her, and his employer then arranges to have Leddo killed.

* BilingualBackfire: Vincke and Verstuyft, using Dutch, agree that main character Ledda (who they think only understands French) looks like "he's spent two years lying face-down on the rail tracks."
