Late in life Kent finds himself in a place where he finally feels at home. On 5 Medis in Stockholm, he meets for the first time the intimate friends he has been missing through life. With his dark voice and passion for jazz, he begins to slowly take in the life that embraces him. Along the way murky memories that hurt becomes clearer. “I lived as if each day were the last. Thought; Now I’ll just get drunk and wait for death. But I have got back my ambitions again. ”
