Partying every night, accidentally sinking a sports car in the pool, thats totally Lennys idea of fun. And having fun is all he cares about. He lives in his dads villa, squanders his dads money and thinks he is some kind of playboy. At the same time, 15-year-old David gasps for air in bed in the dull council high rise where he lives.His mother rushes him to the hospital. David has had a heart condition since birth. No one knows if hell live to turn 16. These two worlds collide when Lennys heart specialist dad shanghais his son into taking care of David.
