A nice old lady is living a lonesome life, filled with small rituals and melancholic memories about some better days. Still, there's something strange about her... The power of denial and fear of change keep the old lady trapped in her worst nightmares until suddenly a long-kept secret emerges and the old lady can't escape it anymore.
