Wounded teenager Saeed is literally carried to Europe by his friend Hazim. In Germany the two become caretakers for CP-affected Marius and get a new mother in Astrid. The Syrian boys took a vow to never separate but Hazim gets sick and disappears. Saeed cannot walk, but it his time to carry, if he is allowed to. Lust For Life is a tender coming-of-age film examining who is carrying whom.
