Touching InfinityGriet Teck
Rebecca, Fernand and Delphine know the end is near. Dying has become a part of their daily lives. Touching Infinity captures their last weeks. Beyond the fear and sorrow, they take us on a journey, carried by love, gratitude and deep connection. Without denying how serious the topic is, Touching Infinity is a film about hope and lightness during the final stages of life. From the maker of 'feel my love' comes an exceptional, warm film about the comforting beauty and power of saying goodbye.
Rebecca has been living with cancer for five years. Her husband Bart and their three young daughters Helena, Elodie and Feline each cope with this in their own way. Now that Rebecca is getting closer to the end, her desire grows to consciously say goodbye. This happens with serenity and love, touching the essence of life. We also get to know Emma and Fernand, an elderly and childless couple who are each other’s big love. And Delphine, whose kidneys are failing and is haunted by an unresolved grief; she lives with her daughter Myriam, who lovingly takes care of her.
