About Life Overtakes Me:
Facing deportation, hundreds of refugee children in Sweden have become afflicted with resignation syndrome, withdrawing from the world into a coma-like state as if frozen for months, or even years. Life Overtakes Me immerses viewers into the lives of the anguished parents who struggle to care for their sick children.
