"Between life and death" nghĩa là gì?

"Between life and death" = giữa sự sống và cái chết -> nghĩa là đang trong tình cảnh nguy hiểm/lâm nguy và có thể dẫn đến cái chết.

Many of us will throw on a jacket without a second thought. But for a billion others across the world, this could be the difference between life and death. While sketching a new winter fashion collection, Dutch designer Bas Timmer realised the treacherous reality people face living on the streets.

On Feb. 3, 2019, at around 3 a.m., Grand Junction Police Department officers responded to a reported stabbing in Orchard Mesa. Schreiner was the first officer to arrive on scene. His actions that morning were likely the difference between life and death for an 18-year-old man in the community.

Echoes of that arresting memory resurface years later in “Kala Azar,” which centers on a young couple (played by Pinelopi Tsilika and Dimitris Lalos) living on the outskirts of an unnamed city in the south of Europe, collecting and cremating dead pets and returning the ashes to their owners. The fragile barrier between life and death is ever-present in the film, as is the task of caring for the remains of the dead, and making sense of their loss.

Life tests Shapia Baloch, a 12 year-old thalassemia patient from Buleda, Turbat, with tough challenges in her regular life. She visits Turbat city from the under-construction Turbat-Buleda road amidst poor financial background. She hangs in-between life and death with her hereditary disease (bệnh di truyền) as she needs blood transfusion (sự truyền máu) after every 25 days. Due to poverty she cannot have a proper treatment outside the city, whereas facilities do not exist in her town. Consequently, she cannot afford to get an education; her poor health condition enhances more of her worries about an education. She weeps with the moon every night pondering if she gets a good health in future or not.
