This short drama concerns the mending a family relationship after a long period of estrangement and the consequences of prejudiced and homophobic attitudes. A young woman has been estranged from her grandmother for many years and has moved to another city to get on with her life. The sudden arrival of her grandmother, who hopes to make amends, challenges the young woman to forgive this past rejection by her family and move forward on a new path.
