How can you communicate if you’ve nothing in common? Language? Food? Television? Is it best to give up and draw? Can you be ‘Drawn Together’? We join a visit by a boy to his grandfather. Neither has hopes for a positive time. What can they find to enjoy together? The grandfather has another language, he’s elderly. Surely there’s nothing that unites him with his grandson?
