Former professional runner Martin is dying of AIDS. The terminal stage of the disease is unbearable for him and he asks for euthanasia. His father whom he hasn't seen for several years because of mutual disputes, and mother, want nothing to do with it and they are not willing to listen to pledges. All Martin has left are the memories of glory from the days he was running and sad memories of his lover from which he contracted the disease, and who committed suicide. In these last hours, the decision on Martins life is made. Is there hope that he might reconsider the decision?
