A troubling diagnosis gives four women a chance to become better versions of themselves, to re-set their priorities, to find meaning in their lives and to surrender themselves to love, dreams and happiness. Here, now, immediately, without complicated and hollow plans for tomorrow.

The processes that build. Processes that are personal but can be shared collectively.
