The film is an autobiographical and emotionally fragile love story that follows Anja, who is diagnosed with a terminal brain tumour that is inoperable, according to the initial diagnosis. As she has only a short time to live, Anja has to address this turn of events with her partner Tomas and their children during the Christmas holiday period. Written by Sødahl, Hope is based on her personal life story, and in the leading roles are Andrea Bræin Hovig and Stellan Skarsgård. The film already had its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival and was released in Norway last November.
