An observational documentary with cinematic experience asking: What is important in life? The motivation for the film is director’s experience of the loss of her father. Every one of us will have to face mortality. It’s up to us what we’ll be like in those moments. A story of a strong woman, a hospice volunteer who survives cancer, celebrating life all along. She says her friendships with death began at the age of 19, when she was in the film The Birch Tree (1967), lying in a coffin most of the time. Today a retired journalist Manca Košir lets us in her intimate world, which is the door into exploring departure. From her private world the film goes wider. Just like in life, there is light/darkness, joy/sorrow in this character-driven film. The overall tone is positive, inspiring. We’ve been following our main protagonist since 2019; it’s an ongoing process. The creative observational film about departure explores in its core the acceptance of time and the celebration of Life. How will you spend the time you have left?
