2009 Feten Best children’s show    

Show recommended from 5 years


Granddad lives an ordinary life: he bathes at the same time, goes for a walk at the same time and eats his breakfast at the same time each and every day.
One day his legs decide to stop walking and, little by little, he dims.
When granddad finally departs, his loved ones build a house very close to him so that he won’t feel lonely. And so the story goes: placidly opening and closing drawers, tenderly remembering special moments of his life through the magic of an old desk.
They say that the departed live on thanks to the memories of those who loved them…
