A man lives alone in a house in the countryside, he’s getting on in age and has a tougher and tougher time keeping up with the day to day of his life. He refuses to accept the reality which is seemingly self evident to everyone around him. Neither does he wish to move into an old people’s home with folks he doesn’t know and routines he hasn’t chosen. Why should he? This charming old grandfather loves his freedom and his independence; the very things that old age is are robbing him of.
