Who We Were

Sine Skibsholt, Denmark, 2016

82 min.DK/Documentary

A life like so many others: Kristian and Mette Line have been together for 12 years. In the beginning it was all about falling in love, travelling the world and careers. Later, it grew from a life of just “you and me” into a family and now they have two children named Celeste and Cyron. Two years ago, they bought their dream house, where they planned to live out their dream of the good life, until one day Kristian suffers a stroke. It destroys one third of his brain. The damage is irreversible, and life as they knew it is gone. Forever.
