An intimate portrait of old age built through the experiences of two ladies in their 80s. They are the two grandmothers of the filmmaker, who invites us to contemplate their daily rituals and routines. While the camera follows their gestures and the physicality of their ageing bodies, the voice of the director asks them about their lives, the passing of time, and death, whose proximity pervades the whole film.
