A Visit

  • Poland

In a care home surrounded by magical forest deep in the middle of nowhere, the residents lead quiet, unruffled lives. Only Sundays seem to bring any variety. For Sunday is visiting day. On Sunday, the residents’ preparations for their families’ arrival start with the early morning. Yet with every passing hour their hope of seeing their loved ones dwindles. They have no choice but to believe that their visitors have lost their way in the forest. But they are sure to come next week.
