Overview Avstøtning

Rebekka wakes up at the hospital after a heart transplant. She has never thought of her body as her own, but rather a tool through which God has shown himself. The close, interwoven relationship with God is beautiful to her and offers her life meaning and cohesion. At the same time the relationship is painful, and Rebekka experiences God’s wrath when she seeks closeness with other people, without thinking about God.

After waking up Rebekka looks back at her life so far. Can her new heart, which has been given to her because of someone else dying, show her a new way to live? At the same time, she is scared of losing what she’s had. Is a new and different life possible while still keeping her relationship with God? Is that really what she wants?
