Women's Day

Finland | 2018 | documentary | 14 min. Student Films Etudes. Finland

A centre for women with addictions in Helsinki. The documentary protagonists have lived through a tough experience: many years of struggling with alcoholism. Excluded, ostracised by society or even rejected by their families, today they are trying to find peace and accept themselves. The eponymous holiday is an excellent opportunity for them to celebrate a new life.
