50 milligrams is not enough

Storytelling in its pure format: a conflict, an ongoing action and an amazing main character. But more important; what a sad story...

This film has won several prices.

Vlad is suffering from incurable brain cancer. Despite his chronic pain, doctors in Ukraine are only allowed to prescribe 50 mg of pain medicine. In another country, doctors would typically prescribe more than 2,000 mg for a patient like Vlad.
