Pak-kiu works as a gaffer while waiting for his first breakthrough in front of the camera. One day he is offered a role as a cancer patient. Desperate to practise method acting, he joins a patient support group, which reunites him with an old classmate. The reunion, shrouded in a façade of altruistic motive, leaves him ill-prepared with an unprepared future.
