COMPLETED FILM
Oliver is a 12-year-old boy whose mother, Mari has stage IV cancer, and together they are preparing for her death. Mari tries to show Oliver how to fly around as a spirit, how to talk to her when she’s an angel in the sky or how they will play football together even after she has passed away. At the same time, Mari must fight for her daughter’s custody, to have a chance to see her before she dies. In the midst of it stands Oliver, whose main wish is that he could simply live happily forever together with his mother and sister.
Who Am I Smiling For? portrays a young boy dealing with the delicate matters of losing his mother to a fatal illness and the probability of losing his sister as well. This is a film about the love of a mother and her children – nothing can separate them, not even death.
