    • Synopsis
    • During a routine health check-up, eighty-year-old Roman learns that his days are numbered. He has no relatives to take care of the funeral and decides to take affairs into his own hands. Unimpressed by the state’s proposal of a modest ceremony, he organises a more luxurious option for himself — live music, an elegant gravestone, a bespoke suit… What bothers Roman even more though is the idea that his hard-earned fortune might pass to the state.

      So begins the desperate search for heirs. Tymon, Michał and Robert arrive at his home, each lured by Roman’s fortune. The cousins try hard to win the old man’s heart, but will he choose one of them or the waitress whose straightforward company he seems to prefer? But Roman also has other business to attend to; ensuring that his pet rooster will stay in good hands and making peace with a stubborn old friend. In a desperate battle against time, and despite some setbacks along the way, Roman finally achieves his goal of turning his funeral into a solemn goodbye.
