Willy, my grandfather, lives alone in his appartment at the age of 91, separated from and criticised by my family. After ten years of rare encounters with him, I’m going to meet him to discover the man everyone blames for our family’s diyfunctions and, through him, the story of a family gone seperate ways after the death of the two people that kept my family together.
