Despite their serious illness, teenage boys appear to have a lot of fun on the children's oncology ward. Nick and Iwan both lost a leg as a result of bone cancer. For their friend Olivier an amputation may be the next phase. The fourth of the bunch, Pepijn, is so ill and weak that he often stays in his room, unable to play with his mates. Friendship and a deep desire to live keep the guys mentally balanced. They make jokes about their illness and act like any ordinary teenager - doing risky stunts and organising joyrides on their wheelchairs and of course talking about girls. When Gina arrives at the ward, the boys start to fight for her affection. Gina is not interested at first, until she realises that her stay in the hospital will be a lot less depressive when she has friends.
