Pal Adrienn

by Ágnes Kocsis International Feature Film / Competition

Everyday life on the palliative care ward is an odious chore for the phlegmatic nurse Piroska – until she overhears the name of a new patient: Adrienn Pál. That’s what her best friend at school was called. However, it turns out that this patient is a moribund old woman. The memories now awoken motivate Piroska to search for her friend, with whom she has long lost contact. Her recollections spark a trip back to her childhood, her own memories mix with those of other people whose path she has crossed. Step by step, the overweight Piroska overcomes her mental lethargy. With each of her visits, she discovers more and more about herself and her school friend, and gradually finds her way back into real life.
