“Glaciers” is the story of a young married couple who have recently survived ovarian cancer. We follow the couple as they struggle to define their relationship after such a life-altering event. Although they have managed to come out on the other side, it has not been unscathed. They are not the same people they were before the diagnosis and everything feels different now. Michael always thought that he would be father, but now even if they could have children of their own he is unsure whether he would be able to support them with the crushing weight of never ending medical bills. Gretchen feels struggles with her new label as a ‘survivor’, challenged to grasp her lost identity and to connect with a body she no longer identifies as her own. Will they be able to navigate their new reality as a united front, or, like the once prominent glaciers, will their bond slowly dissolve in the light of their new environment?
