The film follows the life of Martina Piskač, a woman with spinal muscular atrophy, from her early childhood, teenage years, and motherhood, to when she becomes a grandmother. Despite her difficult, progressive physical disability that put her in an electric wheelchair, Martina can now live independently with the help of a personal assistant. Although she cannot even move a finger, she lives a full life in the best sense of the word. Her story dispels the misconception that such a life is bleak, restrained and less creative, demonstrating that there is no limit to one’s will, mind, and aspirations.

My wife and I had the idea to make a short piece about Martina. Like a message or a commentary about her life. With no knowhow or experience we experimented with how to tell the story in the most compelling way. After three years of persistence, this is a tale about the will to live.
