The worst kind of writer's block

Liv Køltzow is one of Norway's most accomplished authors but at the age of 56 she was diagnosed with Parkinsons disease. Still, she continued writing, using a dictaphone when the muscle cramps made using a keyboard impossible. When her doctor asked her to use a mobile camera to document her disease she discovered a new tool for storytelling. This documentary follows Køltzow up close and personal, piecing together private recordings and interviews conducted around the time of the completion of her first novel since the disease struck.
