F32.2. A friendship against limbo
Vera is one of filmmaker Annelie Boros's closest friends. They made films together and travelled the world. Vera is writing poems. Beautiful ones. She is goofy and witty and filming wacky videos about herself.
While working on a shortfilm she suddenly calls Annelie: “I need your help.“ she says. Vera is suffering from a severe depression. Out of the blue. Medical diagnosis code: F32.2. Something went wrong within her brain.
Annelie is helpless. What happened to the Vera she used to know? Is their latest film project to blame for it?
Annelie start talking to doctors and scientists. Also, she is asking Vera. Remembering good old days, reading letters out loud to each other, going out dancing.
Together, they find images and words for this strange and shitty feeling.
