A young adult film about figuring out who you are in this chaos called life. On top of that, there is a degree of seriousness to rosemarie’s life, for which she is much too young. She has been diagnosed with cancer, and although the doctors say she will survive, the long treatment leaves a mark on her young life. Not least with regards to her relationship with her mother, whose affection and attention suffocates her. At the same time, rosemarie gets the feeling that she cannot really reach her mother who is guarding her emotions out of fear of losing her daughter. The film follows rosemarie’s struggle to move forward with her life – with school and friends – but also to get the rest of her family to move on with theirs.
