What happens with love when a woman in the middle of her life gets three months left to live?
Synopsis: ANJA (43) lives with TOMAS (59) in a large family of biological children and stepchildren. For a number of years the two adults have grown independent of each other, with creative jobs in parallel worlds. When Anja gets a terminal cancer diagnosis, their modern life breaks down and exposes neglected love. Alone with her grief and her fears, Anja realizes that she needs Tomas’ full help and support. It’s their only chance. How else will their children find the strength once she is gone, if their parents are unable to weather the storm together? Anja and Tomas are thrown into a crash course in mutual trust, and eventually a joint struggle, to deal with this unexpected and premature death. By getting to know each other anew, they unconsciously become the principal characters in a love story where they finally learn to truly love each other after a long life together.

“Stunningly Acted! A modern family portrait deserving of its accolades.”
“Believe the accolades: Maria Sødahl’s perceptive, heartfelt “Hope” richly deserves all the attention it’s gotten at festivals and award ceremonies since premiering in Toronto in 2019.”

“A melancholy, highly satisfying adult drama intensely moving.”
—The Hollywood Reporter
“A wildly impressive and devastating relationship drama with unforgettable performances from both Andrea Bræin Hovig and Stellan Skarsgård”
“It’s not easy to make a film about a life-threatening illness that is as rich and joyous as this one can be, perfectly balanced at other times by the very real stakes.”
—Hammer to Nail
“Sødahl… is an artist of quiet, disciplined observance.”
