The glass wall 2016

The glass wall :
Lydia (15) has been suffering from a rare blood disease and her condition hasn't improved. The doctors will now make the ultimate attempt to cure her through a bone marrow transplant. Lydia will have to push through this frightening period in her life all alone, cut off from family and friends, behind a glass wall. To alleviate her solitude, she makes a video log for the outside world.

'It is five to eleven at night and the wall has just been closed. I've hugged my dad one last time and now I'm locked into my two by four meter room’.
