Among other things, the coronavirus pandemic brought with it a new understanding of relationships, interpersonal equations and emotional isolation. It also, thus, emphasised the absolute need and desire to be able to form meaningful connections with one another. The short film brings to life an exploration of the same thought by introducing the viewer to two pen-pals who have been connected to each other via a website.

As an old woman begins to share her approach to life with a woman just beginning out with adulthood and its many responsibilities, a beautiful bond is forged between the two.
