A farm in North Germany. Fields, sheeps, a dyle. Children are running through the house. A dinner service on the table. Grandmother Lulu has died. Her belonings are given out, the bed room is being painted. A barking dog. The nightingale sings. A clock is ticking. Flying sparks at night. Conversations with the mother about dealing with illness, ageing and death. About care and dignity. A visit of a friend in a nursing home. Come by at midnight - a lullaby and a strange message on the answering machine: Am I here?

Heimsuchung accompanies the film maker Henrike Meyer when she is visiting the house of her family after her grandmother past away. A place, that appears intimate and mysterious at the same time. The atmosphere is influenced by light and darkness, memories, fears and imaginations. Home can also be uncanny.
