Lonesome Horst (74) is carrying his heavy shopping bags home as a confused old man collapses right before his eyes. Horst hurries to help, but the man dies on the spot. The grieving relatives, Elsa (42) and Volker (42), are nevertheless grateful for Horst’s caring and the delivery of the last words and invite him to their home. When Horst enters the married couple’s world and notices the empty space in their midst, an unspoken dream builds up within him. But the deeper he slips into the footsteps of the deceased, the more his stay develops into a bizarre nightmare.
