This is film explores loneliness in later life. Helen battles with isolation and loss as she watches people around her who seem to be happy with their partners. Flashbacks to a younger version of herself give us a taste of her earlier life, when, at the age of 25 she had a partner and was happy. The blend of Super-8 and digital footage give the film a sense of nostalgia and visually differentiate between Helen at 25 and at 65.
