My Flesh and Blood. A story about love and loss

The grandmother and grandfather of filmmaker Heilika Pikkov renewed their wedding vows 50 years after their initial marriage in 1959. 

They had learned over the years when to assert themselves, when to forgive, and when to let go. 

They also knew that their time together was limited. This documentary tells the story of their love and the bond they shared as lovers and companions. A film about the filmmaker's flesh and blood.
