Overview Så vanskelig og så ufattelig enkelt

How does one approach life as a ruin? When her mother’s dementia worsens and she starts needing constant care, Line’s world changes. What was once a solid existential framework looks more and more like a ruin where the life of her and her mother so far is left in pieces around her. How is she supposed to keep it together? And at the same time keep the faith in meaning and excess in her own and her mother’s life? What happens to a life that the person living is unable to relate to?

So Difficult and So Unbelievably Easy is a moving and upsetting attempt at keeping the faith in continuity and belonging in the relationship between mother and daughter, parent and child.
