Harriet is an old lady living in a secluded part of the world. The only light in her life, besides her memories, are the days when her grandchildren come to visit. As the years pass by, Harriet feels forgotten, her grandchildren have their own lives and priorities. One day she takes her homemade quilts and starts sewing them together, until she's made a big air balloon with it. She knows she doesn't have all the time in the world, and before she meets her maker, she's going to take it all in, with the help of her air balloon.
