Short film The right to love is a family drama, concerning a wide range of family interactions and ranges beyond the typical idea of a family. Mother Magda is ill. She has ALS (Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis). She is aware of the fact that she has only few more months to live (50% of the patients die in 18 months), but her ability to speak will evaporate in few weeks, therefore she decides to gather her family and speak about the family secrets, which pressures and binds the whole family. Majda decides to use the time she has left in the right way, and does not tolerate any more secrets. Some things need to be said, especially the ones we do not want to see or talk about, and the truth has to come out eventually in order to gain peace of mind and freedom.
