When the increasingly addle-headed hairdresser Stine confides in her granddaughter Romy, it sparks off a great adventure. Light-hearted youth film about Alzheimer’s disease and the strength of family ties.
Ten-year-old Romy dislikes the fact she has to go to her child-sitting grandma Stine every day, who works as a hairdresser and suffers from Alzheimer’s disease. When she confides in her granddaughter and tells her about her growing forgetfulness and fogginess, Romy realises grandma is not only caring for her, but also vice versa. Awarded at the Norwegian International Children's Film Festival as Best European Youth Film in 2019. Adapted from Tamara Bos’ eponymous children’s book.
