Viktoria, 38, is an odd and extremely self-disciplined researcher in the field of suicide. She is invited to a psych ward to treat the suicidal patient Jenny, 19. Through intimate nocturnal conversations they form a tight bond while reflecting on faith, death, violence, the past and thoughts of suicide. Viktoria slowly opens up to experience closeness for the first time in her life, but the closer the two women get, the more it becomes clear that something is not as it seems.
