Teenagers Nick and Iwan are suffering from bone cancer, which cost them both a leg. The same thing may happen to their friend Olivier. Despite their tough battle against the disease, the boys have a lot of fun in the hospital. Armed with the battle cry ‘We’re not sick, we’re sickos!’, the teenagers race their wheelchairs through the hallways and smoke pot in the basement. When the pretty sixteen-year-old Gina is admitted to the same ward, the threesome only has eyes for the girl. Moving and funny youth film about a special friendship.
