I’ll Be There When You Wake Up

რომ გაიღვიძებ დაგხვდები

Loss, the terrible feeling you have after someone you love dies, getting used to the fact that you might never see them again, the only thing, that is left to comfort you are the memories

After spending their childhood with the grandmother, the dog and the granddaughter were able to sleep only if the grandmother promised to meet them in the morning. The death of their grandmother made their lives unbearably sad. They continue to live with memories of her and the hope that they will see her again when they wake up.

Director’s statement
The story is about loss and the terrible pain that comes with it. Getting used to the fact that you might never see the person ever again and what if you don't believe in after life, then the only thing left to comfort you are the memories of the person.
