A sometimes magical, nearly always neorealist narrative short film, Abuela follows Amelia, who has late-stage Alzheimer’s, in her last thirty-six hours in her home, focusing on the interactions she has with her granddaughter Nayeli. Through a series of match-cuts and crossfades indicating flashes back in time and Nayeli’s memories of her and her grandmother, parts of Amelia’s story and being are pieced together.
