Chemo

Chemo

A 30-year-old Benek is going through a crisis with its main symptom
being persistent suicidal thoughts. Benek is convinced that he’s not
able to love, build long-lasting relations with people or “live for
real”. After yet another failed suicide attempt, by coincidence he meets
a beautiful, attractive and eloquent Lena. From the very first moment
he’s dazzled by her and his admiration for her grows once he learns that
Lena approves of his suicidal inclinations and even shares them. She
suggests a few weeks of “real life” followed by bidding farewell to the
world together.

They set off on a romantic journey during which Benek gets to know that there is someone else in Lena’s life… the Tumor.
