After Resi (59) was able to lead her life largely autonomously despite her mental disability, she has been living in the local retirement home in her hometown of Kössen, Tyrol for a few years now. The unconventional Gini (61) is Resi’s sister and guardian, but also her closest ally from the family. Their indestructible humor holds the two sisters together, even though there would have been every reason to lose heart. In March 2020 Resi died of corona disease.
