Hermann is the story of an old man with Alzheimer’s disease. Every day at 8 PM he likes to play his harmonica in the balcony.
During the lockdown in Spain at the same time, all the people gathered at their balconies to applause the health workers and Hermann’s caretaker told him that all this applause was of him playing the harmonica. This piece of animation is a small trip into Hermann’s imagination during the days he used to play for his neighbors.
