I came to know Gertrud Quillus in an old peoples home during my community duties. I regularly used to read aloud to her, and I made a record of one of these visits with sound and images. About ten years later I visited the home again. The film is a project about remembering through film. My encounter with a remarkable old lady became a search for clues based on the images and speech documentation.
