Based on a true story and set on the island of Curaçao:
A rich man and a poor man meet in a hallway of the only hospital on the island, where they learn they are both being treated for the same form of cancer.

The inquisitive poor man is eager to converse, while the rich man wants nothing but some peace and quiet. As the conversation grows ever more curious however, the poor man begins to reveal great personal details of the rich man’s life, while the rich man is convinced he has never seen this poor man before.

We learn that the rich man – whom has had access to all the health-care in the world – will live; the poor man will not. We also learn that though the rich man may not even have realized it, the poor man has been his gardener for over twenty years. 

For five minutes, these two gentlemen become equals for the very first (and last) time. In this last conversation that the two ever have, the poor man reminds the rich man of the value of life, and to appreciate it while he still can.
