Episode I: Sólvá – “Sorgin byrjaði, tá babba bleiv sjúkur” (‘The grief started when daddy got ill’)

‘When the disease was diagnosed it was totally clear that this was a disease daddy would die of. It created a lot of uncertainty, anxiety and helplessness. None of us had any answer to anything, but it was important for us as a family to try to face the uncertainty together.’
– Sólvá Hjaltalin Olsen, episode I
