Time & Tickets

Anja and Tomas adore their careers in dance and theatre. Their blended family structure is complicated, with two young sons and an adolescent daughter from their own union and two adult children from Tomas’ earlier marriage. Returning home after the triumphant international debut of a ballet she directed, Anja finds Tomas is working late, a galling abnegation of responsibility in her eyes. Then her physician gives her a dire diagnosis: she has an inoperable tumour that may be connected to the lung cancer for which she was successfully treated the previous year.
A long-time superwoman who’s been compensating for an often absent, workaholic husband, Anja soldiers on, refusing to tell anyone but Tomas what’s happening – and becoming increasingly exasperated by her children’s blissful ignorance, while only intermittently buoyed by Tomas’ support. The next few days will test the strength of their relationship more than any other challenge they’ve faced. (source:
