Laboratory NO.2 - Life, Death, Bond, Beyond

For over a decade, Hama has forged an unorthodox bond in the Anatomy Department of Sulaymaniyah University, Kurdistan. Working meticulously with a single cadaver, he perceives a deep camaraderie that transcends life and death. The film gracefully traces Hama's intricate interactions, weaving a poignant tapestry that muses on the essence of existence, the finality of death, and the ethereal realm that might lie beyond.
