Medical pioneer Dr Kruger wants to modernize suicide. His dream is to create a therapeutic framework where suicide is no longer a tragedy but a simple, medically assisted act. His exclusive clinic attracts a cast of strange characters with a death wish: a famous comedian with terminal cancer, a travelling salesman hiding sordid secrets, a rich Luxembourg heir, a beautiful but auto-destructive young girl, an old Berlin cabaret singer whose voice is destroyed and a man who has lost everything to his gambling addiction, including his wife.
After Dr Kruger consults with each of them about their motives to end it all, each one has the right to a final request. But in the isolated mountains where the good doctor Kruger realizes his dream of the “perfect suicide”, Death itself, unwilling to bend to his commands, strikes only when IT decides the time has come.
