“This was a film about so many things: cancer treatment during Covid, the specific cruelty of brain tumours, the gruelling reality of treatment, the inequality of accessing the latest medicine and a young family facing an unpredictable future with courage… Heartbreaking and hopeful in equal measure, it was a privilege to watch.”
