Zero Hour (12+)

Russia, 2015, colour, 44 min.
Director: Olga Maurina
Oksana and Denis are awaiting difficult and unpredictable operation. They don’t know each other. Each one has their own life, dreams, and plans. But there is something they share: they both have leukemia. “Hour – minus five, hour – minus four… Zero hour”, that’s how doctors count time from chemotherapy to bone cells implantation.
