A lyric and ascetic documentary essay about children’s hospital, about its lessons in strength and love, about possibilities happiness there. How comes life in a hospital ward for children with leukaemia is full of games, joy and chatter? How do these little patients manage to go about their busy lives, when there is but little hope?
Having his family experience at the children hospital, Lithuanian filmmaker Arunas Matelis returns to the ward to create a film full of life and magic moments in the face of non-existence.
