Shortly after the birth of my daughter, Eli, our dog, Ian, was diagnosed with cancer.
This film documents the last day in Ian’s life where my partner and 6-month daughter accompany me on the way to the vet. where Ian was put to sleep.
The film shows close-ups of Ian’s personal possessions. These images are part of his story.
Ian's lullaby, is a lullaby to death and new life. A silent voyage of fifteen years that despite the pain leaves space for optimism and hope.
