A quiet story about a man waiting for an important surgery. After he learns he’s facing thepossibility of only having a few months to live, he embarks on a vagrant journey with only a “deadline” – 5 October.
From the notes in his diary and his daily search for a place to spend the night, we discover what he is running away from: fear, discomfort, testing weather conditions, and his deteriorating health. Reality, however, keeps reminding him of what lies ahead – a surgery with possibly fatal consequences.
