SYNOPSIS

Actually, there is only one thing that Ina already drives their lives and for which she would do anything: to stand on stage. But a not insignificant fact is Ina way. Her breast cancer has thrown her whole life upside down and now nothing seems to be as it once was.

Now that Ina has survived all therapies  she puts everything to fulfill her dream of acting. In a rush she runs through her "new-found" life, forgetting her own past. She must learn to accept the course of life and thereby, not to displace the disease, which is a part of it.

Directors Note

The Target was not to make a film about "breast cancer". The focus in this film is aimed at life. And so our story begins where many others stop: After the completion of therapy. Then, when it is again: "Back to Life!"

 

We do not show any solutions with this film. Each case of cancer is different and not applicable to others. Every patient is experiencing his illness different and everyone has to find his way himself. So so does our protagonist "Ina" too.

 

It is a story of many. Over a lifetime, a woman who sometimes thoughtful true, then brings back to laugh. A story that desire and hope of life awakens.
