After 15 years of estrangement, the director is re-acquainted with his lonely grandmother, Cecile, at his grandfather's funeral. Over the following three years Cecile's struggles with Alzheimer's and Dementia unfold. During this time Ryan and Cecile's relationship takes on many forms: They are strangers, friends, blood, teacher, pupil, an improvisational comedy duo, partners in crime, and kindred spirits. In this deeply intimate tale, humor is their only saving grace. Lick Salt is a personal documentary about heritage, separation and survival that celebrates the mishigas! (craziness) of life. The film is a vivid character study of a strong minded lady in her declining years, caught between reality and delusions, never pitiable, capable of affection, still vain, and still living independently.
