I Need the Handshakes

Andrei Kutsila

Walentyna, who is 92 years old, lives in a little cottage off the beaten track where she takes care of her daughter who was born paralysed.

Tania experienced unimaginable loneliness in her life, yet against all the odds she found her own way to express the pain and beauty of existence. A frightfully beautiful film about limitless sacrifice, great power of imagination and poetry which can replace reality.
