Josephina

‘Most grandmothers haven’t always been grandmothers. Same as my grandma. She was even a baby once. Only much later, when I arrived, did my grandma finally become a grandma. But one day she forgot about me. All of a sudden. And also about this house, her room and herself. She thought she was just a lady.’

In Josephina, a little boy looks at his grandmother. Based on what he sees, he tells about her. Her daily life slowly begins to mingle with her memories. And at the same time he discovers the unimaginable: that his grandmother existed before he himself existed. Plus, she was once a girl.
