The beginning of this social experiment is pretty typical. Two strangers sit separated from each other by a wall. Neither knows who is on the other side.

They are each posed two questions, one after the other. "If you could have one wish, what would it be?" and "What makes you happy?" The people sitting on the righthand side answer as most of us would. They want to have a better job, to travel more, and to achieve success.

But when they hear their unseen partners' responses, they can't help but look surprised.

Produced by Spanish photographer Paola Calasanz, the video juxtaposes the desires of people are healthy, sitting on the righthand side, with those of cancer patients and their family members on the left. The differences between the two are striking.
