synopsis
Through a fragmented narrative we are taken into the life of Elwood Johannesburg--a young man who has been diagnosed with the terminal disease: Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis. While trying to continue with his life he gets engaged but once he reveals his disease to his new fiance she leaves him. With nowhere else to turn Elwood finds himself at a church and speaking to a priest--somewhere he never even thought an option before his life crumbled down around him. Through his discussion with the priest he realizes how he needs to spend his remaining days and how he can make a difference in other peoples lives before it's too late.
