Synopsis : 

In a remote hamlet in Belarus. Walentyna, 92, lives in a small cottage where she takes care of her daughter, Tania, who was born paralyzed. Tania has never run, swum, or kissed anyone. She has always been unable to move her arms or legs. Despite everything, she has found a way to express herself through painting and poetry where she depicts the pain and the beauties of existence. In the twilight of her life, Walentyna opens her daughter's worn-out notebooks, whose poetic force cannot fail to captivate. With an almost impressionistic aesthetic, this human and modest short film is a wonderful ode to life.
