The loss of a child is difficult, if not impossible to describe. Even for a talented writer like Roald Dahl, who lost his seven year old daughter Olivia to the measles, it is hard to encompass... A wonderful and touching drama.

★★★ De Telegraaf
‘A study of deep grief and ultimately human resilience'

1962. The eccentric children's author Roald Dahl and his wife, the glamourous Hollywood actress Patricia Neal, have retreated to the English countryside to raise their young children. When their daughter Olivia dies, the consequences for their marriage and relationship are deep en inevitable. But their shared grief will also turn out to be a source of redemption and strength that will change their lives forever. Based on a true story.
