A girl in search of what it means to live a fulfilling life seeks advice from her granny who shares stories of her past growing up in Edinburgh, Scotland. As her granny’s memory begins to be stolen by dementia, the girl struggles to keep their connection and is ultimately left to question what is fiction, what is reality, and what the discovery of the truth actually means.
