Rymma Mezentseva has been bedridden for 18 years after an unsuccessful operation. The woman is 92 now. Children live separately, rarely visit her, so a neighbor cares for a woman. Ms. Rima recalls her youth and shows pictures. The woman is from Russia, and she lives in Ivano-Frankivsk all of her conscious life. The only thing she regrets is that she hasn’t learnt Ukrainian language well, but she's fondly singing Ukrainian songs.
