Femke is ill and is through with being ill. She lives with the incurable auto-immune disorder Lupus. A real sniper. Owing to her power of imagination, she can cope with the disease. The spectator sees what she does not usually show and hears what she does not normally say.
Dramatist and filmmaker Femke Kramer suffers from the auto-immune disease Lupus, which gives free rein to foreign intruders like bacteria. She never knows what the day will bring her. Will she lie in bed all day, exhausted and with migraine, or will she have sufficient energy to do something? While we watch scenes from her daily life, Kramer candidly and at times humorously comments on her life and her disease: ‘the wolf’.
