Synopsis: In a conversation with her grandson, 93-year-old Carol goes on a vibrantly animated journey as she reflects on her unbelievable marriage of 62 years. Combining a fantastic mixture of hand-drawn and stop-motion animation, the film explores the memories of love that transcend time and all conventions.
I grew up with the most selfless grandparents and I always wanted to find a way to celebrate them. As my grandma got older, I wanted to know more of their story, capturing it on film flashed in my mind. Soon I began my own reflections on love, time and memory. I sought to explore the essence of falling in love – a fantasy tucked into the real world, where everything feels possible, and time ceases to exist.
