A young boy struggles to understand his ailing grandfather’s dementia who has come to live with them due to his illness. One day he stumbles upon a family album full of old photographs. Taking inspiration from the images, he begins to reinterpret them into new drawings. His grandfather is mesmerised by the boy’s drawings and begins to regain and relive some of his most cherished memories through them in this kind-hearted short about ageing and intergenerational relationships.
