Storyline

Life is no bed of roses for Jorge. Agreed, he has a privileged social status: not only is he a doctor but he is the head of the Hematology department at the Portuguese Institute of Oncology. But oncology means cancer and cancer is too often synonymous with death. Life is all the more bitter as Jorge once fell in love with one of his patients, Clarisse, who had been diagnosed with advanced leukemia. Clarisse and Jorge had experienced a brief period of happiness, but with a sword of Damocles hanging over it. Unfortunately Death won the game: Clarisse died despite Jorge's efforts. And now, disillusioned and depressed, he goes on with his work, aware that he will never be able to vanquish the Grim Reaper. Written by Guy Bellinger
