Default Rejoin cut flat cable ?

Is there a way to rejoin the two parts of a cut laptop keyboard flat cable? I was thinking about silver paste but I don't know if it can be done well.

I assume that the soldering iron can be left closed in the drawer.

Yes you can...
First you must ensure that make mechanical joint extremly good done, maybe put some plate under and glue it to not move or even bend on that place again. Then proceed like this in video:
Precise repair of damaged lines on flat flex ribbon cable

If it is more easely you can prepare cable on flat surface before streight them with plate glued plate.
BTW I hope that cable is made of some material who can solder...

There's nothing you can do about it, there's nothing to solder, the tracks here are made with conductive coating, it's easier to buy a new or (used) keyboard
