A conflict between reason and instinct. Dr Faust, a well known specialist in terminal medicine, is deeply depressed. While attending a conference, he meets a former patient, Santos, whom - eight years ago - he had diagonosed as having only months to live. Together they set off on a life or death journey in the depths of the city, where the buildings are suffering from a strange virus. Faust must struggle against death, his own desires, against Santos and himself.
