Pia, a young woman who works in films, falls ill with cancer. Two other women film makers visit her, and between them they decide to make a film. It describes the last four months of Pia’s life, and her burial in her native Greek village. They are all emotionally involved, and the film shows their heartsearching and doubt, emotion and fear, weakness and strength. When the first grief begins to fade, the finished film develops, a film that shows the strength, and courage to live we can feel in the presence of death. Made by the Swedish director Ingela Romare, with English subtitles.
