An elderly artistic couple, Tomas and Anja, live in a seemingly content marriage, surrounded by a large family consisting of a dynamic mix of children and step-children. When Anja is diagnosed with brain cancer in its final stage just a day before Christmas and she realizes she has three months to live at most, she suddenly sees everything in a different light. Is it possible to catch up with years of neglected relationships and find lost love again in such a short time?
