Ester Viola tells the story of cancer by choosing feelings as protagonists. Anxiety and fear – two of the worst. On the other hand, courage and hope. There are the lucidity and the lack of lucidity that intertwine in the two protagonists, two sisters so different in character: Elena, the apprehensive one, and then Emilia, so calm. The parts are reversed because she is the one who gets sick, Emilia. From the first diagnosis to anesthesia, they remain united, protecting themselves, even if in different ways. Doctors, exams, reports are the background, to underline the importance of medicine and prevention, which should be – indeed must become – an imperative, not just a choice of some, prevention must come first.
