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.
