Gabor is a successful, confident gallery owner, and part of the high society of artists in Budapest. He is always busy; for him, no obstacle is insurmountable, and it’s little wonder he’s reached all of his goals on his own. When a painful breakup and fatal diagnosis give him the chance to reconsider his values and choices, he sees the opportunity for a completely new beginning. He miraculously survives pancreatic cancer, but at what cost? The film explores the existential challenges of the modern world through Gabor’s personal struggles.
