How do you gather courage? This short documentary shows the intimate process of five people who are about to do something they seriously dread.
Everyone has to summon courage sometimes. Whether it is for a big or a small event. Though it is familiar to all of us, we usually keep this vulnerable process hidden from each other. Pacing to and fro, fiddling, sighing, reassuring yourself: 'I can do it, I can do it'. In this short documentary, this intimate process is illustrated by five people who all gather courage in individual ways. A glimpse behind the scenes of a universal phenomenon.
