“Nothing can harm me, neither one way nor the other,” my father says to me, shortly after he told me he has cancer. He looks at life and death with a serenity that I envy greatly. My overwhelming fear and concern for him are contrasted by his extraordinary peace and assurance, an assurance that he draws from his faith. My father is a pastor, my mother is a pastor, and although the evangelical church was ever-present in my childhood and youth, religion has always remained closed off to me. I confront my father with my doubts and questions in front of the camera. Where does his steadfastness come from? Why didn’t he teach me to believe in something? Is it even possible to learn faith? What happens when you die? The film tells the story of a father and daughter at the moment when they must say goodbye. A time full of enjoyment, of pictures, music and talk, full of happiness and closeness.
