Next Episode of This Life is
What would you do if you were diagnosed with terminal cancer? In This Life, one woman finds out. Set in contemporary Montreal, THIS LIFE is a funny, honest, heartfelt series about a regular family whose world turns upside down overnight. Like its French-language counterpart, Nouvelle adresse, this is a family saga focusing on Natalie Lawson, a lifestyle columnist and single mother in her early forties whose terminal cancer diagnosis sends her on a quest to help her three teenage children get ready for the future, while trying her best to live in the now.
Natalie's diagnosis is a life-changer for everyone she loves. Faced with the uncertainty of life, each Lawson does their best to embrace the absurdity of the journey, while confronting the drama that comes with all of their choices, big and small. To get through all this Natalie leans on her two brothers, her sister and her parents, a close-knit, charmingly imperfect clan who each have their own unpredictable personal and professional hills to climb. Through a mix of drama and humour, THIS LIFE explores the many ups and downs of life in a touching, relatable and deeply human story that is positioned to resonate with Canadians across the country.
Natalie Lawson, a busy single mother of three from a close-knit, charmingly imperfect extended family, struggles to find space for herself in her own life. When she finally resolves to change things for the better, she learns that her cancer, which has been dormant for two years, has returned with a vengeance.
Natalie struggles to track down and confide in her sister Maggie, who's in the middle of a lively (and unexpected) romantic encounter. And, despite her diagnosis, Natalie seeks to help her three children balance their problems with school and life, and later kindles an attraction with her daughter's principal, agreeing against all reason to see him for dinner. Maggie's inability to keep her sister's secret turns a family yard sale into an emotional minefield as the members of the extended Lawson clan rally around, while trying to keep the news of Natalie's cancer from the kids.
Natalie has a biopsy that will determine how much time she has left; Oliver returns home.
Waiting for her biopsy results, Natalie gets closer to Andrew; Oliver bonds with Romy; Janine discovers something troubling about her son.
Natalie can't bring herself to tell her kids about her cancer; Maggie and Oliver make destructive choices; Janine questions her faith.
Natalie finally comes clean to her kids; Matthew faces an old mistake; Oliver and his parents reach a breaking point; Maggie is drawn deeper into a relationship.
Natalie plans a birthday dinner for Emma; Oliver's troubles from L.A. catch up with him in Montreal; Matthew faces a dilemma.
Natalie tries to persuade Caleb to accept responsibility; Maggie and Oliver go to LA to fix Oliver's loose ends.
Natalie and Andrew's relationship is put to the test; Emma accidentally throws a house party; Caleb and Danielle comfort each other.
Upon making a life-altering decision, Natalie is confronted with the return of a person she never wanted to see again.
