An eighty-year-old Uruguayan photographer living in Brazil, Ernesto has been facing the troubles of old age, such as loneliness and an increasing blindness he thinks he can hide from everyone. As days go by, he realizes that growing old could mean learning to live with sadness, with loneliness, with memories or the loss of them. But to grow old may also mean to have fun with one’s ghosts, to indulge oneself in the blurred images of blindness, to feel young again with the friendship of a young neighbor trying to discover life. And that it may not be too late to explore the possibility of an old love never forgotten.
