The film takes place in a nursing home where mother has been working for years. Grandmother was the manager of the same nursing home and she devoted her life to it. Now, she is one of the inhabitants. She doesn’t want to accept her weakness and her old age. The granddaughter is trying to animate the grandmother with her camera but their play is interrupted every time mother enters into the room and reality becomes the main character. Memories are built to keep grandmother alive but her desire to leave is too strong. The situation raises the question: for whom is this tougher, for the ones who want to leave us or for the ones who stay?
