Konraad, 83, has written a letter to his relatives that he wants to die. Maria, daughter and only child of Konraad, refuses to discuss her father’s wish. Instead, she wants to move him to a service flat. Her two grown daughters Sabine and Eva have problems of their own. Sabine has a troubled marriage and her eldest daughter Haas is too wise for her age. Eva is in therapy, recovering from an abortion. Ernst, Maria’s husband, is the only one who takes an interest. He decides to assist Konraad in performing his last wish. In doing so he crosses his wife and increases the already existing distance between them. Konraad's offspring are all very caught up in their own worlds. But they obviously have to take a stand in this matter and take a closer look at themselves. They find out there is not much left of the blood ties between them. They find themselves isolated and have all come to a dead end. Something has to change.
