A young woman leaves home to buy cat food and fails to come back home. Meanwhile her Aunty Valerie waits anxiously for her return. When Valerie finds a watch in her letterbox, she finally accepts her once lost memories. This short is generally about people dealing with their personal selves. These characters are struggling with loneliness, loss of love, fear, and pressure, lack of control, pain and death...situations and circumstances that all people experience.
