My sister passed away several years before I came into the world. I only know her from old family photos and from visits to her grave. Yet she was a present part of my growing up. I fantasized that I was her reincarnation, spent a lot of time thinking whether I would meet the same fate as her and die as a child from a brain tumor. What does my sister mean to my brothers and my parents? And what did her death trigger in them? My film is a search for my role in the family, as a late and a very planned daughter.
