In short drama, the terminally ill twenty-something Ahmed has to face his inevitable death. A bucket list gives solace: after all, you only live once.

Twenty-something Ahmed is told that he is terminally ill. In the initial stage of denial, he does everything he can to avert the horrible truth. But it does not help to bury his head in the sand. When he hits rock bottom, Ahmed realises he has to accept the facts and make the most of the time he has left. In this short drama, the ailing twenty-something decides to use every millisecond that remains by checking boxes on his bucket list; after all, you only live once.
