Marek is a fledgling filmmaker who, together with his mother, is taking care of his grandmother suffering from Alzheimer. She is convinced that in the past she used to be a great actress. As her condition worsens, the grandmother loses both memory and recognition turning more and more agressive and domineering. Marek decides to turn his camera on her. Shot as a home video, the film is a poignant study of family and generation relations. Even though the grandmother used to unconsciously act heartless toward her dear ones, in the end her portrait, shot by Marek, will help the family to retain warm memories of her.
