Grandpa and me and a helicopter to heaven

16 minutes

Nearing death, a grandfather bequeaths a profound secret to his grandson

The relationship between a remarkably perceptive young boy and his wise, bedridden grandfather overflows with humour, warmth and love. As the old man senses that he has reached the end of his days, he takes his grandson into the forest in search of chanterelles, an expedition that offers the boy more than he realizes at first as he learns the secrets to finding and cooking the delicate mushrooms. With a light touch and an extraordinary sense for the fleeting moments in life, the film offers a moving reflection on being young and being old, and living and dying.
