Ella and Theo’s relationship is young and evolving and so are they. 




Their lives are going mostly to plan until a sudden cancer diagnosis changes everything. Nerves about meeting each other’s parents and living together turn to anxieties about survival. 


Easy becomes hard. 


Hard becomes impossible. 


Their lives cannot remain the same and now every moment is coloured by illness and the challenges that come with it.


They’re faced with the hardest decision: when you feel like you are losing someone you love, do you hold on or do you let go forever?
