Synopsis
Johanna is my sister. A tumor is discovered in the center of her body. Surgery impossible due to incalculable affects on her stability and mobility. She receives chemo- and radiotherapy. As her older sister, I become her chronicler and for one year I document the inconceivable. In the hospital we meet Nadine, 28. Diagnosis: cancer. The two young women are united by their humor. I ask Nadine the questions I can't ask my sister. With her worldly wisdom she carries us into her family. We meet her son Bendix and the Knights of Chemo. We accompany the two of them to a childrens carnival, watch how Nadine explains her illness to him. I capture the energy and laughter of those two young women, in the prime of their lifes. A film about the confrontation with their own death, which leads them to take on a fight to survive – with unforeseeable side effects. I discover, how big the distance to cancer used to be and how big it now has become to the 'life before'. This film is my survival stratetegy. I am an actress, I change sides, I hold on to the camera and frame the inconceivable.
