Soul Birds / Seelenvögel

For 15-year old Pauline, 10-year old Richard and 6-year old Lenni, life means something very special. They suffer from leukaemia and they are facing death. Pauline writes poems, Richard knows everything about his disease and Lenni´s charm fills any room. Three strong young people with all their plans, hopes, triumphs and defeats. An unusual cinematic approach to a situation that is not all about the disease but instead the search for life’s energy and power.
