Rabiah and Mimi
Documentary I Working in progress
12 years ago, we started filming the journeys of one nurse, Rabiah, who decided to realize her dreams, and that of her late husband’s, in providing adequate healthcare to the people of Eastern Indonesia’s remote islands. Now at the age of 61, Rabiah is mentoring her daughter, Mimi, to become a fully-fledged remote area nurse. However, there are many hurdles that Mimi must first overcome, such as living away from her beloved family, traveling in adverse weather conditions, and treating patients with very limited medical supplies. We follow their struggles as they try to make a difference.
