What Remains

88-year-old Ilse tries to master her everyday life at home in her apartment in Stuttgart-Botnang. Her daughter and her son-in-law are a great help to her because they meet with her almost every day, go shopping with her and clean her apartment.
Even if Ilse is still sprightly, you can tell her age. But despite her physical weaknesses she has an incredibly warm and life-affirming, cheerful nature.
