"At the age of four I was confronted with my mother’s death. The sudden loss of a beloved family member affected me deeply, even at such a young age. Ever since I have been fascinated with how we cope when we lose those close to us. What happens when our dreams or fantasies are destroyed, what makes life bearable after those tragic moments and do we find reconciliation in the end?"
