An older woman struggles with her stove. Her son reacts puzzled: What is mother cooking in the middle of the night for her friends who are long dead? But finally “the Linzers” do show up – whether they’re real or imagined is beside the point. The Visit is an animated short film, and an endearing plea for the right to fantasy that is owed to the elderly.
