t's close to Christmas time. Cecilie (13) is seriously ill and spends most of her time in bed, daydreaming about Sebastian, whom she fell in love with on a trip to South Europe the summer before. One night, a strange little man called Ariel enters her room, and claims he is an angel. They enter a pact; to tell each other about the secrets of heaven and earth. Through a Glass, Darkly is based on Jostein Gaarder's novel of the same title, which has sold two million copies internationally.
