This is the world. Seen through other glasses.

A prim and proper woman arrives at a seaside town with a massive suitcase. Her aim is to relax and recharge her batteries, but the small coastal community proves to be a hard place to be alone. As an ever-increasing amount of idiosyncratic locals make their way into her life, our heroine realizes that these interruptions might be exactly what she needs.

Equal parts quaint absurdity and profound wisdom, GLASSES is a charming and fanciful film about learning to see the world in new ways.
