Helena is a mature woman whose only company is her grey cat. Whatever contact she has with other people is fleeting and insignificant. An unexpected event interrupts her routine and forces her to reexamine her life. Mixing digital and Super 8 footage and sparingly told without the use of dialogue, the film is a meditation on the passage of time and the inner workings of memory.
