Short film directed by Iryna Sakhnenko.
Sometimes in the hustle and bustle of our everyday lives we may not see the tragedy that can fall upon our closest ones.
This story has actually happened in a regular Ukrainian family.
Varya is a young 30 year old successful career woman. Despite her living with her mother in the same apartment, they don’t talk much to each other because of Varya’s often lenghty business trips.
Being in the midst of her everlasting issues, Varya usually doesn’t have time to listen to her mom. In Varya’s absence, the mother was diagnosed with cancer.
And only when Varya sees mom without hair, her life priorities fall in place. Actions speak louder than words. In order to support her dear mother, Varya shaves her head.
