It's all about those who stay behind. A little boy lives with his grandfather in the countryside. There's just the two of them, so they do have to find a way to communicate with each other. Occasionally an older sister drops by. She promises all kinds of things, but soon disappears again. The maker captured the mood of her childhood. Restrained tenderness.
