When Maja was 16 years old, her mother, the filmmaker Anita Killi, was diagnosed with cancer. Nobody knew what the outcome would be. But the whole family felt that a reservoir of good memories could help to survive the difficult time. A touching animated documentary was made out of the more than 2,000 pictures Maja took within a period of two years. A film that shows clearly that it’s not the hair that matters but the smile underneath.

Christian regularly records videos he wants to give his little son as memorabilia and in which he talks about the future and a life he is not going to share. He thinks about what a father should explain – man to man. Intercutting these monologues with animated sequences and private recordings, the film revolves around the question: what is left of a person when they go?
