Dawn is struggling to accept the soulless life of a retirement facility, where she is treated like a chore, rather than the human being she is. One day Will, her grandchild with asperger, goes on an adventure, where he through his altruistic presence, proves that it only requires a little to make the elderly feel seen and appreciated. He goes the extra mile to deliver a beautiful painting to his grandmother, one that will restore her lost feeling of home and love.


All minors must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.

Main Role - Will

Will is a 15 year old boy with Aspergers. He sometimes has a hard time understanding social codes, which often makes him blabber on in conversations. At the nursing home, that is exactly what the elderly need, someone who is genuine and talkative, to feed their hunger for mental stimulation. Will has an immense fascination for the ocean, which in combination with his strong bond to his grandmother, is the driving power for his challenging adventure through the nursing home.

As her mother got older and no longer could take care of herself , Judy started struggling dealing with two “kids” in her life.

Arthur (Old Man)

Arthur is a 80 year old man. He suffered a stroke, which left him wheelchair bound. Arthur used to love going out for walks in the park, being outdoors and being physically active.

Nurses X 2

Their work is very badly paid, especially for the amount of work they need to deal with. There is often a lack of staff for the amount of people they need to care for, which in most cases leads to them only being able to offer the most essential services. They started off going into this profession with a great passion for helping people. Years of undermanned staff, stress and bad salary has made them view their jobs differently, with the cons weighing much higher than the pro’s.
