When her lung cancer is stated as terminal, Muis (Leonoor Pauw) gathers her dearest friends Ted, Carlos and Lian. Together the women come up with strategies to make the best of the time Muis has left: they garden and dance, share food, drinks and prescription marijuana.
With great humour and sincerity, female director Mijke de Jong draws an intimate portrait and captures the way we face death in a very unique way, making Frailer an unforgettable film.
