From the film’s FilmFreeway page:

Accompanied by his father and equipped with filming gear, a grandson travels to his homeland in China to capture what would be his final moments with his grandmother. The Distance Between Us is a glimpse into this last memory of a family grappling with Alzheimer’s disease.

The film exhibits an extensive network necessary to tend the needs of a grandmother forgetting how to count—the 24-hour on-call nannies, the bone-tired grandfather, the hopeful son-in-law, and the grandson desperate to compensate lost time. What began as the grandson’s attempt to document the final hours grows into an examination on a familial relationship separated by both physical distance and mental state.
