The camera nestles into the lives of two elderly individuals living alone in a rural town in Sweden where a traveling sales truck visits once a week. 90-year-old Greta has decided to move into a nursing home as her final abode. Meanwhile, 79-year-old Albert continues to live in a dilapidated house surrounded by weeds with his three cats. As these two seniors look at their lives, their feelings sway subtly toward the natural choice they must make in order to stay true to themselves. The director observes their lives with great interest as he delicately unfolds the universal issues of old age.
[Director’s Statement] This film addresses a universal and inevitable question that we all must ask ourselves sooner or later, regardless of status or background. This question unites Albert and Greta as fellow human beings.
