For as long as Arami can remember, her mother has suffered from epilepsy and Parkinson’s disease. As the only child of an absent father, Arami had to be responsible for herself and her mother at a very young age, which proved to be a very demanding situation. Then, 10 years ago, she was somehow able to cut the cord, as she found her own happiness in Switzerland, where she is living with her partner Patrick. However, her mother’s health is progressively deteriorating. Since no one except Arami can look after her mother, she has to return to Paraguay. This film is a supremely personal film about a universal issue we all have to face: what are we going to do with our parents, once they are old and ill?
