In a hidden place, the daily routine of a retirement home unfolds as time seems to stand still. The pencilled residents come to life on paper. Some are active, others rest or follow a fixed schedule to be repeated each day: medication, meals, games… Around them, machines are flashing, caregivers are busy and some crucifixes remind them of the death that lies in wait. Time fades away and a forest stretches nearby.
