Synopsis
A documentary about an old lady with the Alzheimer’s disease and her polish caregiver.

The Film tells one day and one night in their common life. Grandma Ilse has lost her memory. She doesn’t know anymore about time – yesterday, today, tomorrow – for her it’s all the same. She is a person, you’ll like immediately. But to take care of her is a very hard job, an exhausting work.
Bogumila, her caregiver, has a respectful, even tender relationship to the old lady. In fact, Bogumila gives more than professional care and Grandma Ilse is more than just an old Lady with Alzheimer’s disease – they are two human beings who became friends.
