Ev­ery day in the UK, more than 100 young peo­ple lose a par­ent. In this Chil­dren in Need film, those either be­reaved or pre­par­ing for a death talk about their ex­pe­ri­ences. Among them are Imo­gen, 12, and her sis­ter, Madeleine, nine, whose mother has sec­ondary can­cer. Trag­i­cally, their fa­ther also has Hunt­ing­ton’s and they’re fac­ing the pos­si­bil­ity that they may have in­her­ited either dis­ease. Their un­der­stand­ing and re­silience is re­mark­able.
