Cloudy Memories

After 10 years Isabella decides to move back home, to the Austrian countryside. She quickly realizes how much time has changed everything. Her mother wants to move far away, to a tropical island, her sister has become a young woman and her beloved grandmother has dementia and barely remembers her own name. Her mother and her grandma always had a rather distant and conflicted relationship, but Isabella never really understood why. By looking further into the past, a past that her grandma no longer remembers, things become clearer and a story begins to unfold.
