Din dragoste cu cele mai bune intentii
When his mother suffers a stroke, Alex, a man in his mid-thirties, plunges into a phase of anxiety that no one is able to cure. Though his mother’s situation quickly improves, Alex’s exhausting apprehension blinds him to reality. Refusing to listen to anyone who tries to help or reassure him, he is constantly on edge and throws tantrums at the hospital. As his paranoia intensifies, it becomes clear that Alex’s own sanity is a greater concern than his mother’s health. Getting more and more crazy, Alex makes his own set of mistakes – with the best intentions.
