SHORT MOVIE Fritz blows out his final breath and awakens on his deathbed. His partner Ulrich gives him a last ablution and they start to dance. Fritz begs his brother Peter to give him a little more time to be able to say goodbye to his daughter Susan. The ritual washing turns out to be a tool to enter a new dimension of time and space in which Fritz’s past, present and future flow off into one another. He desperately clings to life, but little by little the world of death forces itself upon him and not knowing how to liberate himself from this unprecedented condition he gradually slides out of life.
