A German contribution to the discussion Siggi Müller, Egon Riedel about a controversial subject.

“A touching tragic comedy!” - Kerstin Lindemann, VOGUE

Hannes is suffering from an incurable disease and he plans to end his life in Belgium, where assisted suicide is legal. Without telling his friends that the trip is to be his last, he asks them to join him and his wife Kiki for their annual bike tour. This film is packed with emotions, so you had better bring a handkerchief and a friend!
