Back to the future III

2047. 91-year-old Ireneusz Slupezki lies in pain, with cancer creeping up his spine. Slupezki lies in his iron hospital bed, helpless, drifting between dreams of a long forgotten past and a reality ruled by deadhearted nurses, left with the only perspective of dying in agony. Yet, there is a way out, offered by a hyperactive young doctor: euthanasia.

"Cry, O Lord" is the radio drama by Wlodzimierz Kowalewski and Janusz Kijowski based on a novel of the same title, a nightmarish vision of a world having lost its spiritual scaffold.
