Seventy-five year-old Orfa is sent a mobile phone and a letter by her son, who is unable to visit her. Resignedly, Orfa starts to sell off the 200 minutes that are on her mobile, putting the money towards the cost of her funeral. 200 Minutes is a poetic and melancholic reflection both on time and our inability to live life to the fullest in the company of those we love. The dazzling Orfa is resplendent in her beauty, while her neighbour and sprightly contemporary nourishes an affectionate wit.
