Synopsis

19-year-old Roman Kogler has a chance to be released early from his young offenders’ institution. The odds are against him, however: he is an uncommunicative and solitary character without a family and doesn’t seem to be fit for re-socialization.
As a day-release prisoner he has a job at a funeral home. Of all things, it is this job dealing with death that shows him the path back to life.
