Dandelion mum – Løvetannmamma

Directed by Barbora Hollan

When Ivana got bone marrow cancer, she was told she only has 2-3 years to live. But instead of listening to the doctors, she got resilient. 11 years later, she’s working as a visiting scientist at Harvard. But despite surviving against all odds, she is now caught in a bureaucratic system, and torn between staying in the US to get her treatment or returning back home to be with her family.
