The film

30-year-old rich kid Lenny lives in his dad’s villa, squanders his dad’s money and thinks he’s some kind of playboy. 15-year-old David has had a heart condition since birth. No one knows if he’ll live to turn 16. One day David gasps for air in bed in the dull council high-rise where he lives and his mother rushes him to the hospital. There Lenny’s dad, a heart specialist, forces his troublemaking son to take care of David. David’s world is one of clinics and operating rooms, Lenny’s world is all girls, clubs and parties. To keep it simple for himself, Lenny helps David with the things he wants to experience at least once before it’s too late, the easy stuff: go shopping for cool clothes, steal a car, things like that. A friendship results that’s so serious, so intense, so wild, as if there’s no tomorrow – which may be true. Based on a true story.
