Sometimes life changes in just a few seconds. “Livlina” tells the story of Lina Falcken, who got a severe brain injury after falling in stairs. After a few days in coma, she woke up to a reality where she’d lost her ability to speak, walk as well as most of her memories. But Lina is not the one to give up without a fight. Determined to get her life back on track, she has managed to regain her ability to speak through intensive rehabilitation. A couple of years ago she couldn’t even take a step – today she runs marathons under four hours.
