This short film touches on themes of family, remembrance and separation. Analyzing the actions of the characters can lead students to make connections to aspects of their own lives. What affinities do they have with their grandparents? Also, the special relationship between the grandmother and granddaughter in the film raises questions about the transmission of values across generations. This animated film can be a good starting point for a creative writing assignment about a childhood memory.
