In a hidden place, the daily routine of a retirement home unfolds as time seems to stand still.  The penciled residents come to life on paper. Some are active, others rest or follow a fixed  schedule to be repeated each day: medication, meals, games… Around them, machines are  flashing, caregivers are busy and some crucifixes remind them of the death that waits ahead. Time fades away and nearby, stretches a forest.
