20 min / fiction short, Short Film

This night will most likely be Ivo's last and he knows it. Behind the doors of the hospital room, his family and friends are waiting. Ivo's grandson comes to the hospital with his new young pregnant girlfriend. When he introduces her to the old man, Ivo asks if he could see her breasts. In the hallway, his wish becomes a public affair. Everyone realises this might be his last wish, but at the same time they try to stay more or less considerate towards the young woman. How will the family solve such a delicate situation? And is this truly Ivo's last wish?
