12 October 2019 | by searchanddestroy-1See all my reviews

That's a purely medical student study movie, made by a former doctor, who lnows what he's talking about. the tale of a friendship between two students with its ups and downs. A very good character study, which also shows what medical students life is actually is. Also a beautiful friendship story pulled by a solid ending. An ending about sacrifice.
