A candlelight dinner. But it’s not romantic when Maja tells her partner Leon she no longer loves him. Maja has been in a coma for quite some time. Modern technology, however, has made it possible to transmit her consciousness to a smart device. But life behind the glass of a camera lense doesn’t make her happy. She asks Leon to pull the plugs on the machines keeping her alive. Leon is in a dilemma – should he fulfill her wish and, as a result, lose her forever?
