Synopsis
Meet Ester, the one person you think will live forever, because you simply cannot imagine a world without her. When she gets cancer, it affects everyone around her. Her husband, her children, her friends. They all start questioning their lives and their own mortality. And so, this could have been a grim tale about a woman possibly dying of cervical cancer, but Ester would never allow that. Instead, this is a story of Love, and Life, and all the glorious – and silly – things we do before we die.

Note from the artistic direction
This Norwegian series rises to the challenge of emotions and laughter at the same time, all of the time. This portrait of a mother who finds out she has cancer is carried by a magnificent choral performance, an incredibly gracious staging and an indisputable quality writing.
