Synopsis

The heartless sea is relentlessly approaching poor grandmother’s house. By losing her five senses one after the other, she gradually becomes more and more wooden. Until one day, she transforms completely into a chair while waiting patiently for her greedy children to visit her. Rose, her thorny housekeeping beast tries her best to prevent this transformation but fails. In the end, Grandmother discovers the soft human being hidden under the surface of the beast and eventually realises that Rose is the kind of family member she was always waiting for.
