Capturing documentary about a little girl’s heart Victoria Larsson was only a few days old when her parents were told that she had a serious heart disorder. They had to make rapid preparations for a christening, as no one knew how long she would live.

TV4’s Susanne Edmark met little Victoria for the first time in December, 2006. Victoria was then 8; her lips were blue due to lack of oxygen; she was short of breath. Although her love of live was stronger than ever, Victoria could no longer manage normal school days. Only a donated heart from another child could save her life. She had many thoughts about death, but about what she’d do if she were granted new life, too.

One spring evening in 2007 what Victoria and her parents had long been hoping for happened: the phone rings – someone has donated a little beating heart to Victoria and it’s time for Victoria to be admitted to the Queen Silvia Children’s Hospital in Gothenburg.
