The official synopsis reads:

Living in the same quaint nursing home in the foggy Slovenian countryside, Bruno (Sandi Pavlin) and Duša (Silva Čušin) enjoy each other’s company. However, their moments together are always soon forgotten, as both suffer from dementia. Due to their failing memories, each time they meet feels like the first. Their unique relationship is evoked by Gigliola Cinquetti’s song “Non ho l’età” (I’m Not Old Enough), performed at the Sanremo Music Festival in the 1960s – a special shared memory from their youth and a constant anchor that keeps their relationship grounded. When Bruno is alone, his past resurfaces, causing him to retreat to his old life – his home, his wife, and his dog, who are, in reality, no longer around. But, Duša, who loves toast and has a habit of walking through sprinklers, continues to be there for him against a backdrop of fragmented memories.
