Now that her memory starts dete­ri­o­rating, film­maker Martijn Veld­hoen encour­ages his mother Lotje Ruting to tell her life story one last time — even though she does not want to be filmed. In this inti­mate portrait with inge­nious visual solu­tions, a few photographs and some specific ques­tions by her son, Lotje’s history in her Amsterdam canal house is revived. How did she expe­ri­ence her marriage with the ever-busy artist Aat Veld­hoen? How did she manage to raise four chil­dren all by herself?
