Mette’s life changes instantly and irrevocably, when her husband, Per, dies in a tragic accident. To have a reason for being around her mother documentary filmmaker Cille Hannibal, picks up her camera and starts filming. This is the beginning of an unpredictable journey over the course of a year where the relationship between mother and daughter evolves around the one who is missing. Last fall he was alive and now he is dead. I am me, but I am not the same. This is the state of flux and stasis depicted in the film. The film examines how two members of a family deal with the grief and how their relationship is changing.
