A summer light penetrates through the interstices between the half-closed shutters, and casts its dappled shadows in Noëlla’s apartment, as she prepares to undergo physician-assisted dying. She is accompanied by Pierre, her caregiver, who looks after the daily necessities. Dense and diffuse, the last days of her life reveal the tight weave that links these seemingly infinitely repeated gestures to the ephemeral nature of our lives.
