Bittersweet. A journey to the little things 

Conceived as a personal video diary, this documentary is the life record of a man afflicted by a disease that is almost impossible to cure.

Suddenly, the little things that go unnoticed, skin sutures, children's drawings, a daughter's hair... are poured onto the screen to show us the passing of a life.
