Making a film when you're 87 is less than convenient.

Making a film when you're 87 is less than convenient. As granddad Tweedie reluctantly takes up his new role as a filmmaker, we’re invited to examine the difficulties of communication between the generations. Will Tweedie start to see the world differently when looking at things through the lens of his 23year old grandson, or will he simply be wondering what's for pudding?
