A woman attempts to hold together memories of her childhood, but they seem to slip through her fingers as her mind continues to fail her. The only constant in her life is a shawl she made for her father as he left for the war. As she knits, the thread runs through her past and her present, connecting the missing pieces of her grief and weaving a tale of love and belonging. The effects of war are tangible in the minds of those left behind.

  1. The ‘sketchiness’ of the animation brought real depth and energy to the film, and gave character to both the people and the location. The poignancy of the story was well matched with the string soundtrack. Overall a lovely film.
