Awake in a Bad Dream
  • Year2013
  • Duration114 min

Three Dutch women at different stages in their lives receive the same diagnosis of breast cancer. For Vicky, a feisty gardener with a dogged determination to survive, this is a relapse and familiar territory; for Ingrid, it brings to fore questions of her own womanhood and how the mastectomy will affect her self-image. Bubbly hairdresser Sabrina also must put on a brave face for the sake of her two young children as she starts her long road to recovery. Award-winning directors Petra Lataster-Czisch and Peter Lataster present a sensitive testament to the fighting human spirit as well as a bittersweet reminder of life’s finitude. Granted full access to the most private moments of doubt, courage, and frank discussions of death, the film steers away from narration or voiceovers, allowing the women and the unwavering support of their families to embody the stories.
