An intimate portrait of Basia – an energetic eighty-year-old. We observe the film’s protagonist in her role as grandmother, mother, sister and actress. In simple scenes from her everyday life, humour alternates with nostalgia as the most important issues in life are addressed: love, ageing and death.
