Tristan soon realizes that when you have cancer there’s a thin line between tragedy and comedy, and to survive you need to know how to cross that line as often as possible. Freezing your sperm, shaving your head, sharing a room with an elderly man and falling for his granddaughter, are all surreal scenarios Tristan must face with humor and the help of friends both old and new.

Sense of Tumour is produced by Česká Televize, based on the original Prix Europa-winning series from Sylvester and VRT for VRT (Belgium).
