“At which point do you let go?…” – This is the central question of “Vios”, a short documentary that tracks the last days of a dog suﬀering from terminal cancer and how its owners struggle with the critical decision: whether or not to euthanise her.
Shot over a 6-month period by the owners, Wendy and Ler, this intimate documentary is unfettered access into the lives of the filmmakers, exposing their deepest vulnerabilities in face of this crisis, which had crushed their finances and strained their relationship.
Through their personal story, Wendy and Ler hope to create more awareness for dogs with cancer in Singapore and around the world.
