Karisa's life in town is interrupted when other members of his family accuse his 94-year-old grandmother of witchcraft on the social media. He decides to return to the village to defuse the conflicts. In this documentary portrait, superstitions, religions, old age and jealousy are bad recipes for getting along with one another.

A first cinematographic collaboration between musician Maia Lekow and her husband Christopher King that captures the unbreakable ties between a young town-dweller and his country grandmother. Absolutely unforgettable!
