Patients in an oncology clinic receive chemotherapy. Their faces can be seen in a close-up. They lie in pairs and hold fascinating conversations. Life seen from a different perspective, a distance offered by a hospital, reveals its value, sense and charm. Why so late?

Director’s Statement

“Cancer is a very democratic disease. In the Chemotherapy Day Ward, people of different ages and from different walks of life meet regularly for a few hours beyond time. These people talk about many things, sometimes trivial, sometimes important. Quite naturally, an interpersonal chemistry among them grows. For me it’s a film about the need for such conversations.”
