Documentary Short Film Contest 52 ED. 2024
France – Israel 2023 24' Documentary Debut

Between four walls, two women are waiting. One for death to come and get her, the other is waiting to finally begin her life. Based on a recorded conversation, the film simulates their attempt to escape what they can’t help but live, as they realise that “nothing” can sometimes be special.
