a journey of love on a transplant waiting list
Force of Destiny Film

SYNOPSIS

Robert is a renowned sculptor who lives alone surrounded by the tools of his trade and his highly distinctive artworks. Robert is close to his daughter Poppy, but has an unresolved relationship with Hannah from whom he is separated. The family is stunned when Robert is diagnosed with cancer of the liver and six months to live. In the process of physical decline and mental turmoil, Robert meets Maya, an Indian marine biologist who comes from a different world, a different reality. Maya’s Uncle also has cancer and is preparing for death by passing on his wisdom and knowledge with grace and acceptance. Against all the odds, Robert is put on the transplant list. New hope and future possibilities appear, deepening his planetary journey with Maya. In Robert’s last tumultuous months his nightmares and passion for Maya intensify. His love blossoms and he has to confront the agony/ecstasy of finding a love that has evaded him his entire life just as his body is about to be taken away from him.
