When Hans looks back, he must say: That was a good life! He saw the world, loved his wife Martha and yes, two, three things went wrong. But that doesn’t need to be talked about. And now? Two years ago Martha died, Hans can barely manage his daily routine anymore, and after a visit to the vet his beloved dog Miller doesn’t return home. Hans is tired. Basically he can’t be bothered anymore. He wants to die. But one doesn’t talk about this. At best maybe with Willi, his friend. He trusts in him, he considers him as his ally, who should help him implement his plan. Willi the true friend, who will support him until the end…

This Swiss German-language film was filmed and produced at locations in Zürich in Switzerland, and is the second last film starring Mathias Gnädinger, and Jörg Schneider‘s last movie film.
