SYNOPSIS

Touching Infinity tells the story of three families confronted with nearby death. Beyond sadness and    fears, Touching Infinity takes us on a journey of love.

We follow Rebecca, Bart and their three young daughters Helena, Elodie and Feline in their everyday lives. We get to know Emma and Fernand, an elderly and childless couple who are each other’s big love. And Delphine who lives with her daughter Myriam. Rebecca, Fernand and Delphine know that their days are numbered. They take us through the last weeks of their life. The story of Rebecca and her family forms the backbone of the film. Rebecca has been living with cancer for five years. Now that she is getting closer to the end, her desire grows to consciously say goodbye.  This happens with serenity and love, touching the essence of life.

Touching Infinity is a film about love, gratitude and deep connection in the last growth phase of life.
