POLISH TITLE: POWIEDZ MI COŚ JESZCZE

REPRESENTED BY KFF

Barbara (67) has been suffering from Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis for five years. She is bedridden. Once a year, when Barbara's husband goes on vacation, the person responsible for taking care of her becomes her daughter - Martyna (36). She cooks, feeds, cleans and nurses her mother. Because of the loss of muscle control, Barbara is only able to communicate by moving her eyes. She looks left for "yes" and right for "no". Letter after letter Martyna deciphers words, sentences, and meanings. They both long very much for those conversations sensing that the end is near.
