The Most Beautiful Day by Florian David Fitz

The quirky, overambitious pianist Andi (33) and the happy go lucky, laid back Benno (36) have just one thing in common: both are diagnosed with a fatal disease. With their end seemingly around the corner, Benno convinces Andi to escape the dead-end hospice and to go on a road trip in search of their last and most awesome day. They cleverly scam the needed cash and set off 1st class for Africa!

For the hypochondriac Andi the beginning of the trip turns out as a nightmare, while Benno secretly pursues a hidden plan to face his past life for the first time. Their journey leads them through hazards and numerous tragic-comedic and dramatic moments and finally to their original aspiration… THE MOST BEAUTIFUL DAY
