An intimate journey of grief and loss as three siblings navigate their emotions in differing ways upon returning home to their mother in her final hours.
Vianne has received a terminal diagnosis and is determined to die at home. Her three children Connie, Quinn and Amal all have a different way of grieving – each approach shaped by their individual circumstances, their capacity to hold space and their courage or desire to confront the truth. As Vianne tackles her impending death with humour and humility, the onus falls on each child to face the inevitable and choose presence over letting this milestone moment pass them by.
