Description

In the documentary we meet Lisbet, Sabrina, Tine and Marie, who all live with incurable breast cancer.

 

The four women have been brought together by sharing the same illness. They share their deeply personal reflections on the life that is left, on existence, on intimacy, on relationships, and on guilt. They do not have time for trivialities in their lives. They are close and none of them would do without the group, but what is impossible to disregard is that they will lose each other. Consequently, they are constantly reminded that they can be the next to go.

 

How do you live your life when serious illness is made part of your identity? When you are the bearer of most people’s greatest fears? Which interactions do you then have with the outside world?
