An integrated team of specialists is at the center of palliative care, accompanying people of varying ages on their journey towards death. Through movement, four bodies tell a story of companionship.

Balancing Act

Balancing Act. Art in a center of palliative care

You don't come here to get better, but to live your last days as fully as possible. This is a palliative care service. On a daily basis, the caregivers work together and listen to each other, to be as close as possible to the patients.

In parallel to the scenes showing a medicine full of humanism, the filmmaker's voice is heard. She too accompanies her mother through her illness.
Four dancers highlight the chronicle of this accompaniment.
