From shortly after she gets the diagnosis to the present, we follow Maria in her struggle. She decides to overcome the disease and tries every possible way to get well. She promises to keep on working and to stay in this life as long as possible! In the middle of her struggle she very unexpectedly meets love.
Jonas, a tall and handsome man with a light version of MS, is taken by Maria’s strong personality and they start to plan for a life together. It’s spring, they get engaged and a church is booked. But time and disease mercilessly goes on and as Maria gets worse, Jonas hesitates and the wedding is indefinitely postponed. It’s not working out with her assistants and Maria is feeling that she’s loosing contact with her son. She’s frustrated but she won’t give up.

“Don’t count me out”, she says hardly audible, ”I’ll make a theatre play, I’ll write a book, I’ll fight until I get the help I need!” Still hoping. Still believing that she through some miracle will get well.
