Christian is renovating his new flat, when his mother calls to inform him that Greta, his demented grandmother, is about to die. Troubled he takes the next train to her house.
Surrounded by the family Christian discovers that his parents sold Greta’s favourite painting without her knowledge to enable the purchase of his flat.
Ridden by shame Christian steps up to Greta’s deathbed. As he gently caresses her hand, she unexpectedly opens her eyes and leads him into a world behind the mirror, on a rollercoaster ride through her memories: A happy family story, with the painting as their silent witness, always in the background.
However, the picture carries a dark secret.
