Two women who have shared a life together find themselves facing the imminent illness of one of them. The sick woman decides against going through any treatment and they move to a small cottage in the woods to wait for death to come to their lives. Little by little, their relationship is fortified.

Our take

Gracefully titled after a Pavese verse, José Luis Torres Leiva’s achingly intimate tale of rediscovery beats with the pulse of poetry. Blending dreams and reality, the Chilean director captures a miraculous rebirth of love on the threshold of death, luminously turning an end into a new beginning.
