24 June 2020 | by milicaiphoneSee all my reviews

The movie tells a story about a young woman finding out she has cancer, and how she has decided to deal with death. A simple love story, with constant stability for years, has to come to an early end. Trying to make death and loss hurt less by distancing herself from the love of her life, setting him up for a life without her. It shows the different ways people deal with grief. The ending is really beautiful, showing her simple and peaceful death, with her last view - a hawk.
