An experimental portrait of Yves Zimmermann, a Swiss man who emigrated to Spain in the 1970s. The film, made through the lens of his grandson who has now emigrated to Switzerland, is an atmospheric exploration of time as a cyclical pattern, of the intricate family interdependencies and of the making of meta cinema as a revelation of the diverse and indispensable elements that constitute a narrative. A personal reflection on growing and becoming, which develops as a gentle dance between a fictional frame and a more intimate documentary approach.
