The film aims to raise awareness of how society treats older people,  as well as raising funds for a cancer care charity Macmillan nurses, and Help the Aged. The film takes a journey through a day in the life and a life in the day of stroke victim Elsie, played by actress Virginia McKenna.

Elsie makes a heartfelt but silent plea for her carers to ‘Look closer…see…me…’
