‍At Kyrkbyn, a state-run old people's home on the outskirts of Stockholm, many of the residents will soon turn 100 years old. Some of them didn’t even know each other’s names until an activity coach was hired to bring them together. With her warm, engaging personality and an endless supply of ideas, Monica reawakens their youthful spirit, 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 has her leg amputated and her health worsens, Monica organizes a big celebration for her 100th birthday and takes her back to the village where she grew up. 


Whilst a joyful experience, this becomes an emotional roller-coaster for Monica, confronted by the fear of losing the people around her.


Live Till I Die explores what it means to live life to the fullest right up to our final days, while embracing with humour, candour, and dignity the ups and downs of getting old and losing our independence
