Pharmacist (2007)

Original title: Apteeker

Documentary Duration 26:09


This is a story about a pharmacist in her late 50s who works in a small community. Unlike the other members of her community, the woman finds happiness in helping cats and other animals and not in drinking alcohol near the village shop nor earning mammon. She has no husband nor children and she actually does not want to have them. She likes her solitude and has courage to be different. However, this is "unacceptable" for the society.
