-Wake her up.
-Should I wake her up?

Yes.

What?

Good morning.

Maybe you were hoping
I was someone else?

What?

Wait, I had a lovely dream.

Honey, we don't want to know.

-No, nothing like that, it was...
-Please spare us.

Dibs on not sleeping with you in New
York, I don't want to be molested.

It wasn't like that.



But hey,
have you been able to sleep?

Yes.

Oh, can you pass me the phone,
Alina?

It's ringing.

-Hi, Leffe.
-Hey.

-Hey, Dad.
-Hey, sweetie.

-Hi.
-How are you feeling?

We're fine.

-Okay.
-We're great.

Hospital today, I didn't forget.

-Good.
-Nora. Say hi.

How did it go last night,
telling the girls?

Say hi.

It'll be fine.



Right. You sound a bit tense. Should
I come up or are you coming down?

-I'm outside, should I come up?
-No, that's not necessary.

Stay there and...

-So you'll come down?
-Yes.

-Good.
-See you soon, good.

-Bye.
-What... did he say?

Um, he wants me to come with him
to the hospital.

I'll clean later when I come home.

-No.
-Don't worry about that.

It's fine.

But your fly is open.

Oops.

But we'll do dinner tonight?

Yes, of course.
See you later, take care.

LIVE LIFE

This is incredible.
What were they thinking?

There's not a single park here.

I'll just deal with the ticket.

But... I can just go in myself.

What?
Of course I'll come in with you.

It's really important
that I'm there, so you feel...

Nut you get so...

I mean, you'll just be waiting
around for ages.

Yeah, but that's the least
of our problems.

Didn't they say something
about radiation,

that you're not allowed
to come with me?

-What, did they?
-Yes.

What?

Are you sure you can go alone?

Yes, of course.

You know, it'll be fine.

Sweetheart. I'll wait down here.

Yes, perfect, great.

And they've explained how this works
and what we're doing today?

Yeah. You want to look at my...

tumour to see if it has...
grown or spread, or...

Yes, that's right.

You can put your phone, jewellery
and other metal items in this.

Then we'll get started.

CAN WE INVITE LEIF TO DINNER
TONIGHT TOO?

YES!

I'LL BAKE SOMETHING

-ABSOLUTELY! GO FOR IT!
-THAT'S SWEET, BUT I DON'T THINK...

Are you coming?

Just a moment.

HE'S UP FOR IT,
AND WE'RE PLANNING NEW YORK.

GOOD, IS HE ALLERGIC TO ANYTHING,
NORA?

You can do that later, because you
need to get changed so we can start.

Yes, I'm sorry. Of course.

Excuse me?

Excuse me,
can I change the song?

Hello? Could you change the song?

Hello?

Hello?!

Hello?!

Hello, please?!

Please! Hello?!

Hello?! Hello?!

Please! I want to get out of here!
Please! Excuse me!

SHOULD I TEXT LEIF
OR WILL YOU ASK HIM?

NO, DON'T WORRY ABOUT IT.
HE NEEDS TO REST.

Fuck.

Are you okay now?

What? I'm just...

Sorry.

Are you going to see Åsa?

-Yes.
-So you've got cancer?

No. Well... no.

No.

Åsa is a cancer doctor.

I have a... Well...
I got a tumour x-rayed,

but I haven't gotten
the results yet.

Nora Rylander.

Hi, welcome.

Thanks.

So that you're aware this might be
necessary, depending on the results.

But we won't know
until the operation,

so I think we should
schedule that...

Wait, operation?
I'm having an operation?

Yes.

We have to remove the tumour,
considering its size.

Then we'll do a biopsy to find out
what type it is,

then I'll know whether we need
cytostatics or another treatment.

I'm talking about chemotherapy.

But that is if... if it's cancer?

If the tumour is malignant, yes.

If... If I do... the treatment...

I'll lose my hair and...

You know what?

We won't do any guessing now,
because it helps no one.

One step at a time.

Hi, sweetie.

My sweetheart.

Put in five tablespoons and make
icing with a bit of sugar later.

Do you have a flour sieve?

Oh, Leif.

Poor Nora. He's all she has.

Makes you want to...
help out, somehow.

Here!

And her mum. I'm sorry
but what's the deal there?

Yeah, her mum was...
she was messed up, you know...

Nora doesn't like talking about it,
so I don't ask.

Typical escape behaviour.

Common after childhood trauma.

Wow, are you gonna start
diagnosing her now?

You graduated, sweetheart.
Take it easy.

Oh no!

My assignment, I completely forgot.

You'll have to finish. I have
to sort something out before dinner.

What do you mean,
"I'll have to finish this"?

No, no...

Did it feel okay,
telling the girls last night?

-That must have been hard.
-Mm.

-DONE.
-NICE!

What's up?

That girl, Sara, from work, booked
an interview with a Skarsgård.

Your job seems competitive,
I have to say.

Maybe. What do you mean?

I just thought... maybe you should
think like that with this too.

-Like a competition?
-Well, something you're gonna win.

You can see this as round one,
for example.

You've done the x-ray, check.

This milkshake is your prize,
so we'll toast and celebrate, okay?

Cheers! Let's celebrate!

Milkshake? Worse prize ever.

What?

I want a certificate.

Of course you get a certificate.
Of course.

Orup.
...out tonight... with us tonight...

Love this song.
...could know that she loves me.

Woo!

You can put it on the rack
to let it cool.

Your first choco-surprise, Alina!

Thank you for helping.

Oh, here's Frida.

Hi! Welcome home!

-Thanks.
-Oh, God, what happened?

Yeah, the sun was pretty strong
in Greece...

Maybe a bit more than they told me.

Yeah...

-Do you have any cream?
-Yeah, they do.

Come in.

Have a nice evening.

-Bye!
-Bye.

Oh... feels like ice cream.

You poor thing.

Where's Nora, by the way?

She'll be here soon. She's been
at the hospital with her dad.

Why has she been at the hospital?

Well, um... he... it's...
He's got cancer,

but she doesn't want us to talk...

-Hey!
-Cancer?

Hi, I'm here now.
Wow, it smells great.

Yeah. But hey, how'd it go?

-Um, it...
-Hi girls.

Sorry to interrupt,
you forgot your charger in the car.

-Hey, Leffe, hi!
-Hey, there.

-Hi.
-Hi, Leif.

-Oh, hi.
-Um...

Wow, what a hug.

Dad, weren't you in a hurry?

Um, no, it... oh.

Oh, you're a little sticky.

Have we met?

I don't think so.

Hello.

Thank you so much for the charger.

-We'll talk tomorrow.
-We will.

Since you're here, don't you want to
stay and have dinner with us?

Yeah, that would be amazing.

But it's a girls' dinner, so I
understand if you don't want to.

Girls' dinner... so old-fashioned.
No... we're like... we'll...

Yeah, exactly. We'll be planning
so... super boring.

But we're eating dinner too. It
would be great if you want to stay.

We've got food and...

Yeah, I'd love to.

I don't want to intrude.

Yes! Yeah, it's totally fine.

-Please!
-Of course!

I'll get a chair.

Lovely.

This is delicious.

I didn't know you were studying
to be a chef.

Social science. But thank you,
that's nice, I'm glad you liked it.

If you liked that, just wait
until you taste my dessert, Leffe.

It's amazing.

It's a choco-surprise dessert.

Your first choco-surprise.

-It's the first one.
-It's the only one that matters.

But hey, Leif, I was thinking...
Tell me if I'm overstepping, but...

If you want, I could help to...

look up dietary advice and recipes
that I could send to you.

Yeah, it's lucky
I didn't cook tonight.

I'm a catastrophe in the kitchen,
aren't I?

Yeah, that's true.

Her fish stew, ew.

It was the worst thing
I've ever had in my life.

The kitchen still stinks of cod.

-Wow.
-God.

I used to eat my cat's food
when I was little.

Was it a dare or something?

No, I just liked it.

That's crazy.

But listen,
should we do the bookings?

Alina?

Could you help me with this box?

-I think it's leaking.
-What?

-Can't you do it yourself?
-Please.

Why should I...
First you, and then...

am I supposed to clean all day?

You're all full and satisfied?

DON'T TALK TO DAD ABOUT THE CANCER
OR NY IT'S A SENSITIVE TOPIC.

Alina, could you pass me my laptop
from the bench there?

I've got some Airbnbs open...

But I think it's time for dessert.

-Yes!
-Is it time? Alright.

I thought we'd book before,
and do the choco-surprise after.

No computers at the dinner table,
sweetheart.

-That's what you always say.
-What?

Yep. Dessert first. Right, Madicken?

Okay...

Hey, Leif, just say if you don't
want to talk about this, but...

-how long have you known?
-Doris?

I've always wondered about
the social sciences thing.

You do it if you don't get into the
psychologists program right?

-Uh...
-I mean, is it an easier program?

What's going on, are you drunk?

You've had a hard day, sweetie.

maybe you shouldn't be drinking.

Were you hungover?

Can we just talk about
what we're here to talk about?

-Doris, I need your help.
-Alina, pass me my laptop.

No, can we just do the dessert?

Are you okay?

Don't discuss the trip
in front of Leif.

-What are you whispering about?
-Not now.

-Choco-suprise?
-Wow!

I'm sorry, this is so messy,
I've got my laptop.

My bus leaves soon,
can't we talk about New York?

-Frida!
-But we were.

-Not in front of Leif.
-What? Because he's got cancer?

Fuck. Um...

Dad doesn't have cancer.

Dad doesn't have cancer,
I lied. Um...

It's me.

I've got a tumour
on one of my ovaries.

And...

it might be cancer.
