What is life? Is it the longing for a lover, the fear of aging, the rebellous fight for a dignified death or the hunt for the most clicks? Is it just a show? The film paints a multi-layered picture of being and puts the taboo subject of death back into the cycle of life. In different storylines a ruined love relationship crosses paths with an old man begging for euthanasia, a live show in which the candidates are mercilessly sacrificed to the audience, a dancer who, despite self-improvement, cannot escape aging, and the person with the mask who wants to become famous at any price. And between all this a corpse chauffeur rolls his “clientele” through a long corridor and contemplates his own thoughts about life and death.
