Dotty is trying to send her daughter a text message, from her room in a nursing home.
It took her four minutes to unlock the phone.
For the average phone user, this is effortless. For her nurse, it’s a true test of patience.
She then takes three more minutes to type “hello”.
Here’s beautiful reminder about things we take for granted: robust brain activity, mobile phones, mothers, mothers and their persistent love.
This is Mick & Brett’s debut short film, starring Joyce Irving and Alison Bruce. It won Best Short Film at Nantucket Film Festival.
