SHORT JOY // An empathic observational documentary unveils the everyday life of a terminally ill woman. Despite the paralyzing pain and the unfavourable prognosis, she keeps learning new things and builds a relationship with the woman who lovingly cares for her day and night. The trauma of the impending final farewell transforms into a strong bond between the two women. The fear of death intertwines with the feelings of closeness and gratitude.

„I will never be able to show her my gratitude. But I am extremely grateful.“ A. Faizan
