Taking the form of a poetic essay on memory, and how it can serve an end-of-life present, Lida is a portrait constructed by crossing the testimonies of a dismembered family. Lida is an octogenarian woman, the last survivor of an old Swedish village in Ukraine, who has lost contact with her family and lives in a nursing home. In this home we are guided by Lida's words, sometimes in a confrontation with the ambiguous interventions of the other people who live there. It is in this daily accompaniment, interspersed with semi-dreamlike images that echo past histories and distant memories of the son and sister with whom she has never met again, who know her journey of love, war, inheritance and detachment.
