Juan is a sixteen-year-old diagnosed with symptoms of Asperger's who makes movies with his 96-year old grandmother. His movies serve as a form of expression and personal refuge, but as he becomes increasingly concerned with the day his grandmother will be gone, his stories begin to explore his feelings about death.
