19-year-old Roman Kogler has a chance at early release from an institution for young offenders. The odds are against him, however, he is an uncommunicative and solitary character without a family and doesn’t seem 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.
