synopsis

Els' daughter doesn't want to live anymore. The formerly cheerful child became suicidal at the age of 13, to such an extent that she has to spend most of her time under medical supervision. She sees euthanasia as the only solution to her desperate condition. She not only wants to abandon her life, but unfortunately also her mother, who can only stand by and watch.

“The themes of motherhood, the motifs of the mother-child relationship, are inspired by the relationship with my own mother and my own possible relationship with motherhood.”

biography

Anna Gyimesi (born 1985) is a Hungarian filmmaker who also studied medicine, and this professional training is reflected in her film work. In her creation, she focuses on taboo topics related to social dilemmas, in which serious illnesses and making critical decisions on one's own life and the lives of people close to us stand at the root of the problem.
