Tomorrow Was Yesterday

Documentary film 58′, 2008


The documentary film Tomorrow Was Yesterday introduces Marja, a lively though slightly demented grandmother. Her daughter Terttu and grandchild Anna, her guardian, pursue to place Marja in a nursing home.


Tomorrow Was Yesterday is a story of how difficult it is to admit or even understand when one is old and in a need for help. A story of caring and love for our close ones, it also reminds us that anyone of us can share the destiny of Marja, Terttu or Anna.
