Synopsis

PATIENT is the word that defines us as we follow medical instructions or have to stay calm while we wait. In Colombia, a country where the harsh health system requires its users to face absurd bureaucratic obstacles to access its services, Patient is not only the one  who have the disease but also the one responsible for the daily struggle  to ensure  that his or her loved one receives all necessary needs. Nubia is a  PATIENT, a mother  head of family who despite living with the anguish of losing her daughter by an aggressive cancer, firmly gets to overcome the labyrinths established  by  the Health System  processes upon which depend the life of her daughter.
