A former quasi-polygamist, Res, is dying from cancer in an abandoned wing of a run-down hospital. Reviled by all around him, he is left to die alone. He refuses, however, and remains alive, outlasting doctors’ estimates by several months. With this backdrop, one of his former loves, Sylvia, his proclaimed favorite, visits him against her better judgment.
