Synopsis DOK Leipzig Logo

The term “shadow children” is largely unknown in our society. It is about children who live with a terminally ill sibling. The entire attention of the parents is directed to the sick child. The healthy children are in the “shadow”, they take on tasks for which they are still far too young, they fill the family gaps that open up due to the overwhelm of the parents. Often enough, it seems like it is the days in the hospice the healthy children long for since here they are relieved of all burdens for a few hours.
