I didn't know a narration of a documentary could work as a short story, but “In This Moment, We Are Happy” by Chen Qiufan makes for a vivid example. It has a good flow to it and doesn't feel forced. I can really imagine the video installation in place and the cuts in the film about pregnancy, the wish to have children, and the people who go about it in non-traditional ways.
