My Life with Martha

Martina Bergmann takes care of Martha, a woman in her mid-80s who has a particularly poetic outlook on life. Neither can say anymore how this came to be, but they are so happy sharing the same house that it hardly matters.

Pointedly and true to life Martina Bergmann portrays the experience of living with Martha, someone who, despite her illness, remains full of humor and wit.

Her story shows that caring for someone suffering from dementia does not have to be a burden and, in fact, can be inspiring and life affirming.

And while this unconventional living arrangement strikes passersby as odd, Martina wouldn’t have it any other way.
