About the Film
This animated documentary follows the daily routine at a retirement home in an isolated location. While time seems to stand still, the story unfolds as the residents come to life on paper. Some appear to be active, yet others follow a fixed schedule to be repeated each day: medication, meals, games, and a lot of resting. In the surroundings, machines don’t stop flashing, caregivers are constantly busy, and the crucifixes hanging on the wall remind everyone of inevitable death. Time fades away, while in the distance, a vast forest stretches on.
