Based on writer-director Maria Sodahl's own experience of being diagnosed with cancer, Hope is a poignant and intimately observed drama about the resilience of love. Longtime partners and parents to a large family, Anja (Andrea Bræin Hovig) and Tomas (Stellan Skarsgård) have grown independent of each other, with creative jobs in parallel worlds. Their modern life breaks down when Anja gets a terminal cancer diagnosis and realises that she needs Tomas’ full support. After years of emotional isolation, they finally begin to find each other again. 

This film contains scenes of bereavement.
