THE SAINT BERNARD SYNDICATE

Rasmus doesn't have much time left to enjoy life. He's just been diagnosed with ALS. But instead of drowning in self-pity, he forges ahead. His old friend Frederik is looking for a partner and investor in his business. Together, they set off for China to sell St. Bernards as status symbols to the new middle class. Soon, however, the two men notice that they are really far away from home.
