Debbie Was Here

Debbie Was Here

Debbie Lasri celebrates her 51st birthday in a psychiatric ward. Riva, her partner, arrives at the ward with Michal, her video-therapy student, hired to make a personal video with Debbie. Michal is drawn into Debbie’s world, but her story is full of gaps. As curiosity and over-motivation become an obsession, Michal crosses the lines looking for answers. Following Debbie’s trail of crumbs, she locates all the sub-characters of the story. The pieces of information revealed through her camera suggest that there is more here than meets the eye.
