Centring on a seriously ill teen, Oxygen disregards the expected melodramatic tears and inspirational message to deliver a realistic portrait of youth facing mortality far too soon. Brothers Tom and Lucas both suffer from cystic fibrosis. Tom reacts against his short life expectancy by get ing involved in petty crimes. When he meets Xavier, an affluent young man suffering from the same illness but behaving like a top athlete, Tom's forced to reconsider the time he has left and what's important in life. Winner of the European Discovery award at the European Film Awards 2011. Part of Glasgow Film Festival 2012: Youth Film Festival.
