Three teenagers appear to have a lot of fun on the children's oncology department on the fourth floor of a large hospital. Nick (14) and Iwan (15) both lost a leg as a result of bone cancer. For their friend Olivier (16) an amputation may be the next phase. The fourth of the bunch, Pepijn (15), is so ill and weak that he often stays in his room. Friendship and a deep desire to live keeps the guys mentally balanced. And of course their interest in sexy girls makes them act like any ordinary teenager. They make jokes about their illness. They call each other "sickos". The sickos cannot walk, but with their wheelchairs they do risky stunts and organise joyrides in the corridors of the hospital. Their friendship changes when Gina (16) arrives. The boys try to seduce her, but 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. Sickos is a humorous drama that deals with adolescence and chemotherapy
Pawel Lozinski follows the chemotherapy patients of a cancer ward over a year. The outside, where ‘normal’ life continues, trees bloom, shed their leaves or are covered with snow, does not exist except in a few glances out of the window or at some dim passing figures. The camera consistently focuses on dialogues and on the faces of those who find themselves between life and death and their closest relatives, capturing this suspended life with wonderful ease.
Street children exist, but nobody wants to do anything about them. This drama follows several kids willing to do whatever it takes to survive living in their tough and dangerous neighborhood. They take drugs to forget their worries, but this leads them to commit terrible crimes and face even worse problems. This glimpse into the harsh realities of street life is infused with dark humor that helps lighten the film's intense mood.
