Grandmother. My life in a diary

After Grandmother's death, two relatives enter her apartment and search through the objects she left behind. Among them, the diary in which she reliably wrote everything she did every day.

As we observe the space she once inhabited and the objects she used, a familiar voice reads the diary entries, and we discover a simple, everyday life, a powerful presence that has ceased but leaves its mark.
