Anna is around 30 and lives a secluded life with her dog Manu in her little flat. For Anna, she and her dog are the perfect family. Then Manu dies and Anna's life falls apart. She buries the dog in the garden of the house opposite, where Sophia lives with her husband and two children. Anna seeks refuge in this chaotic, happy family. Initially a somewhat persistent visitor, she slowly becomes a parasite who wants under all circumstances to be loved and accepted. A sensitive, quiet film which places more weight on the power of pictures than words.
