Grandma is not like any other. Her Édouard is already gone, but she doesn’t give herself to loneliness. She dresses with strong colours, sends emails to her friends, and dominates the internet. She’s a queen between her gadgets and her memorabilia. This is her portrait.

Suzanne is a 21st century grandmother. Emails, several per day. Tablets, at your fingertips. Bitcoins, monthly investment. The internet occupies her day, but it does not erase  the loss of her husband Édouard. She continues to talk to him and analog photographs continue to flood the house. Suzanne lives between two worlds, a space that belongs to ghosts. A film that is constantly challenging and provoking us, but never for free. (Carlos Ramos)
