Synopsis

Philip is an 85-year-old man who, for the last 30 years of his life, has lived in the hope that one day he will be reunited with his wife in the afterlife. But his yearning is jeopardised by a dream he had about her in which he searched for her among a crowd of women in a barren landscape but he could not recognise his wife’s face no matter how hard he tried. He is tormented by the doubt of whether dead people grow old like us, or does their appearance change with time. He puts all his effort into ensuring his reunion with his wife and does whatever it takes to retain the fading memories of his wife’s face in his mind. But this quest of Philip demands him to face the things he has avoided for thirty years and at this stage it’s no more a choice but the only gate to open that needs to be walked through.
