Love can move you to do the impossible.
What about jealousy, anger, revenge?
Fuelled with those emotions, two lovers in this short film battle each other for the man they love.
He’s in comatose for far too long, but his best friend and his wife want to his life to end for different reasons.
One wanted the truth, the other, wanted the truth to be buried with him in the grave.
And so the battle of wills, curses and cures begin.
