SYnopsis
A life loving, successful gallery owner’s life turns upside down when at the age of 50, he is diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. He takes it as a chance to confront his long surpassed existential questions. But coming face to face with his true self turns out to be more frightening than death. He, a son of poor factory workers, learned how to march forward and be strong, but now has to embrace his weak side too. Through the intimate portrayal of Gabor’s fight, the film deals with the existential struggle of the modern world. If not a fatal illness, what can make us slow down to be able to listen to what we really need? Why are we so scared of facing our traumas?
