MAJA’s life is finally coming together and her boyfriend couldn’t be more pleased. In the midst of moving out from their student flat, Maja’s evening takes a surprising turn when she stumbles upon an old relative who is without a doubt, dead. Nobody from the family is available to help, so Maja has to deal with it herself.
As she waits for the authorities, SARA, Maja’s childhood friend, joins. Maja tries to get rid of her, but Sara is more than keen on sharing her latest successes. Hours pass and they’re stuck with the dead body. Absurd situations arise. Are they allowed to eat next to a dead person? Did the woman just move her hand? And what is the proper way to say goodbye to someone you didn’tactually know?
