Synopsis

Alex, in his mid-thirties, is a quite neurotic character. When his mother is hospitalized with a stroke, the caring son’s life gets out of track. At the hospital he finds himself in a burlesque kind of human zoo full of unexpected characters and surprising events. Trying to manage the situation in between everybody’s advice, he’s becoming hypochondriac. While his mother seems to feel perfectly fine Alex is making his own set of mistakes – throughout with best intentions.
