Live Till I Die

At Kyrkbyn, an elderly home on the outskirts of Stockholm, many of the residents will soon turn 100 years old. Wheelchaired or with very low mobility, some of them didn’t even know each other’s names until an activity coach was hired to break this solitude. With no nursing education but with personality and a bunch of ideas, Monica reawakens their youthful spirits, turning them into a playful gang who are always ready to crack an unexpected joke or participate in spa sessions, boxing lessons and themed dinners.

Ella, a 99-year-old gracious and cheerful lady who doesn’t have any close family, develops a very strong connection to Monica. When Ella must have her leg amputated and her health worsens, Monica organizes a big celebration for her 100th birthday and taking her back to the village where she grew up. Though rewarding, this journey becomes an emotional marathon for Monica who needs to face her fear of losing the people around her.

Live Till I Die is a documentary film that explores what it means to live life to the fullest on the last hundred meters, while embracing with humour, candour, and dignity the ups and downs of aging and care in late life.
