Thirty-year-old Benek is suffering from an existential crisis. One day, he meets and is mesmerized by Lena, a beautiful young woman. They set off on a wild journey, during which Benek learns that there is someone else in Lena’s life. She has stage 3 cancer, which she has no intention of treating. Benek’s admiration is mixed with fear; he promises to stay with Lena until the very end. CHEMO is inspired by the true story of Magdalena Prokopowicz, founder of the Rak’n’Roll Foundation.
