Diagnosed with an incurable brain tumour, director Kit Vincent enlists his family for an intimate and darkly humorous journey to help them come to terms with his illness.
Kit’s family had already experienced its fair share of tumult when the 24-year-old was diagnosed with terminal cancer. Kit’s mum, a community nurse who spends much of her time caring for dying patients, was traumatised by the thought that her son will be one of them. Meanwhile his dad, Lawrence, threw himself into a series of obscure diversion tactics – from growing cannabis in his spare room, to relinquishing his lifelong atheism and secretly attending a local synagogue. What Kit captures with his camera traverses the fine line between humour and grief, detailing his family’s acceptance of his fate, and celebrating the relationships that keep us going, particularly in life's darker moments.
