Eliza is in the hospital and her adult son has come to collect their one precious treasure, a violin, in order to sell it. But he has not reckoned on meeting the eleven year-old girl who has befriended his mother, nor on the flood of memories this encounter produces in him and which we see enacted by his younger self. Eliza’s House tells a story of the clash of parents and children, the pull of the past, the force of memory, and the bittersweet nature of love.
