Synopsis

Seven-year-old Lulwa dotes on her elderly grandfather, whom she spends time with every Friday. He is showing early signs of senility – sometimes he forgets his promises, and sometimes he even calls Lulwa by someone else’s name. Still, her time with him is important, even if she has to be extra-patient and remind him of simple things he needs to remember. ‘Smicha’ shows that love is not found in blurry details, but in a powerful bond that never fades.
