Zero Hour (18+)

Russia, 2015, colour, 44 min.
Director: Olga Maurina
Oksana and Denis are young. 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 and a very difficult and unpredictable operation ahead. “Hour – minus five, hour – minus four… Zero hour”, that’s how doctors count time from chemotherapy to bone cells implantation. This situation requests from Oksana and Denis all the courage they have… Each one of them is fighting illness in their own way. Each one has a fortune of their own.
