"Kristof Bilsen’s film is a radical achievement: a love letter to loss, sacrifice and yearning."

Available on DVD & Download

In a small village in Thailand, Pomm takes care of Europeans with Alzheimer‚Äôs. Helping the residents during the final stages of their life,¬†she has sacrificed being close to her children in order to earn a better living.¬†Meanwhile in Switzerland, a family prepares to say goodbye to their mother; a woman who has developed Alzheimer‚Äôs in her 50s. Through extraordinary coincidence,¬†these two narratives collide, challenging society’s preconceptions¬†about the powerful relationship between patients and caregivers: both are trying to recover the pieces of their lives that are gone.

Critically-acclaimed following its world premiere at Sheffield Doc/Fest, Kristof Bilsen’s second feature is an intimate and moving exploration of motherhood¬†and the frustrations of being unable to care for the ones we love.
