The cancer victim's pilgrimage

Suffering from aggressive prostate cancer, Einar Lunga he has found long walks to be a cure for the mental distress of the disease. On the ancient pilgrim route to Caceres in Spain he is able to orient himself in an inner landscape of fear, sorrow and hope, finding solace in nature, people and the development of personal religious and philosophical ideas. THE DISAPPEARANCE ACT OF EINAR is an intense road movie from the long and winding road of terminal disease, full of wisdom, strong dialogues and triumphant insights.
