A troubled old woman who is battling dementia is determined to find a solution to her struggles. The grandmother decides to revisit her huge archive in the hopes of finding clarity for her missing memories. Upon her research she stumbles on magical doors who helps her to communicate in form of her previous memories. 

There are only four kinds of people in the world. Those who have been caregivers. Those who are currently caregivers. Those who will be caregivers, and those who will need a caregiver.

― Rosalyn Carter

Grandparents are mysterious creatures. As a child, I spent most of my days with my grandma in the kitchen listening to her stories about her life. After she was diagnosed with dementia and she started asking me to remind her about her life I realised how little I knew about her. With age and hindsight, I loved the opportunity to spend a little more time in her company and begin to understand the woman she was.

Doorways and openings are symbolic structures that have great significance in our daily lives. Moving through difficulties or challenges, entering into new spaces and opportunities, leaving sadness, loss, a broken heart – doors and openings provide the transition point to change.
