About This Show

Tom and Clementine have med school externships in the cancer ward. They find refuge in the storage closet where they escape together to play games on their phones. Things get messy when Clementine falls in love with Tom and Tom falls in love with their patient, Jake.  Over many months, Tom and Clementine explore the boundaries of their friendship and argue about god, complacency, and who makes the best end-of-chemo cake.
