In this delicately rendered animation, Emily, an elderly woman with dementia, vividly relives her memories.

Sitting comfortably in her armchair Emily (voiced by Fionnula Flanagan) takes a cup of tea and a biscuit when a simple mishap triggers a pleasant journey into the past. She swims through the memories of being a child on a beach, a young woman in a lover’s embrace and a young mother concerned for her little girl.

Inspired by writer/director Louise Bagnall’s two grandmothers, this is a poignant celebration of ordinary lives.
