Cancer patient and successful writer Lilith Winterbottom should be dead by now. But the cynical misanthrope seems to scare even death away, in order to finish her last book and find a hero's death worthy of her main character Spider.

Storyline

Successful novelist and misanthrope LILITH WINTERBOTTOM (80) and chatty, religious ODAMEE MARSHALL (64) could not be more different - and yet, they are united by the same lethal diagnosis - and the same hospital room. What starts as a power struggle about the TV remote control ends up in a deeply touching and heart-warming story about finding new hope. Written by Anonymous

First - for the meet between Miriam Margolyes and Jane Marsh. For the mix of humor and hope and irony and clashes between the lead characters. For the way to tell a story of each woman front to her ill. For the build of novel. For the shadows of past. And, especially, for the last feeling , inspired by the end. A beautiful short drama about lessons of life and about the conquest of peace. And, sure, about the importance of the other for coherence of your universe.
