Having cancer isn’t always the hard part. On top of managing your own fears and expectations, you feel obliged to wear a brave face for your loved ones. Delivering bad news with a mixture of dry science and irrational optimism becomes second nature… Dani brings such a conversation to life, as 30-year old Danielle Hernandez delivers her grim breast cancer prognosis to her mother Violeta. A story that’s as unique and personal as it is disturbingly universal. Using stop-motion animation, Dani shows us how a simple phone call can be a study of human courage, faith, and love.
