When a young woman receives the absurd news from her father that he's had enough of life and wants it to come to an end, she is forced to search for a way to deal with his last wish. But is it possible to understand someone's choice when that choice goes directly against your desire or interest?
Language: Dutch, subtitels: English
Iris and her brother Ivan struggle with their father’s decision to step out of life. Not because he is affected by unbearable suffering, but because he wants to avoid that. Iris has the greatest difficulty accepting the situation, while her brother and his wife focus mostly on practical matters. Iris deviates from their seemingly well-oiled script. She tries everything in her power to dissuade her father from his decision, or at least get an answer to the one and only question that really matters to her: why?
