Photo and producer Johan Palmgren.
The 31-year-old woman named Cinna worked as a show artist and an actress when she all of a sudden suffered from a stroke, a clot in the brain. After having surgery she wakes up completely paralyzed on the right side of her body, face and with aphasia. This means she cannot talk nor read or write. But Cinna refuses to let it break her down, instead she takes up the fight against the disease. The road to get better is longer than she initially thought and it does not lead back to her former self, instead it takes her to something entirely new.
