| 11 min

It's summer and Ludovic is invited to his grandfather's farm. The little teddy bear finds Grandpa very saddened by the death of Grandma, and Ludovic is fascinated by a room filled with mementos. Grandma's portrait comes to life, and Ludovic is able to kiss and hug her. This poignant tale evokes the closeness and understanding between a grandfather and his little grandson who gradually learn to accept the death of a loved one.

Ethics and Religious Culture - Ethical Values
Family Studies/Home Economics - Aging/Death and Dying

This film deals sensitively with the subjects of death, aging, bereavement and the cycle of life. It provides a way to talk with very young children about the loss of a loved one and the importance of remembering. Young children can express themselves through speech as well as writing and drawing. The special relationship between the grandpa and grandson allows us to question how values are transmitted from one generation to another.
