'Cocooned' is a portrait of a widower, four years after her bereavement as she struggles to connect or engage with the world around her. Her story is told through a series of diary extracts and live action footage all shot in the confinement of her bedroom which she seldom ventures out of. The past is revealed to show the impact it had had on her present life.

'Cocooned' shows how the loss of a spouse can lead to withdrawal from the world, and how this impacts on the bereaved survivor's mental health.
