Eva’s life is not great. Her husband has left her for their neighbor, her son doesn’t want her to take care of him anymore and she is about to retire. But one phone call changes everything. The big actor Harald Skoog has gotten a stroke and needs help in his home to be able to play the role of his life; Cyrano de Bergerac. Eva takes the job to get away from her loneliness but in the confrontation of the self-absorbed actor her life turns into something new. – this is a story about friendship, hope and that it’s never too late to dream and to live the life you want to live.
