Sophie and Wolfram, both theater actors, want to spend their final days together. They share one fate. Diagnosed with cancer, Sophie wants to end her life on her terms. In her apartment, the two share intimate and tender moments. Wolfram leaves his daughters behind to explore the gentle love to Sophie. She lies to her friends about her condition at a dinner party in order to have one last life-affirming evening. Uli, her best friend, promises to bring the life-ending medication soon. With ups and downs in the days of waiting and through the power of her imagination, Sophie takes Wolfram to the stage one last time before breaking down in her apartment.
