About the film
The film is set in a facility with around 500 inhabitants. It depicts the stories of individual patients, their hopes and dreams, and the relationships they have built themselves. On the other hand, it also shows the side of the doctors and the committee and the process through which they select potential wedding candidates. Join us for an engaging exploration of both the concept of marriage and the meaning of patient autonomy.
