Awake in a Bad Dream
Ingrid, Vicky and Sabrina cope with breast cancer in various forms. Their tough and painful treatments are at an uncertain stage on the journey towards hoped-for recovery. Their self-esteem is deeply affected, their sense of femininity eroded. They feel damaged and insecure. AWAKE IN A BAD DREAM shows in a very personal and intimate way how the women and their partners try to hold onto life again after diagnosis.
