“My name is Marguerite, I am 97 years old. Why am I here instead of at home?”. Marguerite had never moved, feels a stranger in her daughter’s house, locked away, afraid of bothering people. Time drags … And yet her granddaughter, very tender towards her, helps her to relax and to enjoy the beauty of the setting sun.
