Synopsis

Linda Griffiths was an iconic Canadian playwright and actress. Priscila Uppal is a poet. When Linda was fighting breast cancer, Priscila was diagnosed with a rare and aggressive cancer called synovial sarcoma. During Priscila’s surgery, Linda passed away. But during Priscila’s chemotherapy, Linda unexpectedly returned and the two friends engaged in magical, insightful, and bitingly funny conversations about their experiences – and their understanding of the present and the beyond.
