Inspired by Romanian author Max Blecher’s autobiographical novel. During the summer of 1937, Emanuel, a young man in his early 20ies, is committed to a sanatorium on the Black Sea coast for treatment of his bone tuberculosis. Little by little, he discovers that there is still a life to be lived to the fullest. After falling in love with another patient, he narrates his and his fellow patients' attempts to live life to the full as their bodies slowly wither but their minds refuse to give in.
