An elderly man’s teenage grandson convinces him to go on a date the boy set up online, so the former can escape the routine of caring for his ailing wife. The boy is a product of the modern age, blissfully unaware of what long-term commitment means - he is still so focused on the immediate - and although granddad has second thoughts, his departure changes the game. This is powerfully understated story realized through a smart script, very good direction, and performances that convey so much meaning without words. This is a beautiful, sentiment-filled life lesson about how love can look past present hardships to see what made it possible for so many years, suggesting that a lifetime of love does not make that job onerous.
