Christmas and New Year. Three girls between 18 and 20, are hospitalized with cancer. All three of them have serious problems, not just in terms of health, but also in terms of their relationships with their nearest and dearest. The girls find a haven in each other's company, where they are free from the fear of death and loneliness, and a substantial part of the film describes their sense of humor, unrestrained candidness and uncompromising zest for life.

Like the other comment shown here, I thought this was going to win the Academy Award for a short film. Powerful script, and really just an overall brilliant film, but very hard to watch. Tremendous acting as well. I thought this was a better film than The Mozart Of Pickpockets, though that was a fun film and this one may have been too much for some people. Very heavy, but the quality shines through during the whole experience.
I can't believe this didn't win any awards. So far it's only been listed as having the single nomination by the Academy, and no others. This is one of the strongest shorts I've ever seen, and deserves recognition as such.
