The global pandemic in 2020 destroyed so many families’ lives. The lockdowns, the quarantines, and the deaths created family separations and deaths for millions around the globe.

Israeli director, Emily Shir Segal lost her father at the very beginning of the pandemic in 2020. With the sudden sickness of her father, time ticked away quickly to even see him one last time. Alas, the pandemic procedures quickly separated their loved ones at hospitals, and no one even allowed visitors or to say last goodbyes.

Segal missed her opportunity and directed a four-minute short film I think it’s enough, isn’t it? as a goodbye love letter to her father, who died at the hospital.

The young director went through old videotapes with her and her father since her early childhood. In this collection of videos, she narrated the story of her father’s death and an attempt to reconstruct one last encounter with him.
