After finding out by chance that his ex-girlfriend Mina’s Mum died, Simon decides to steal her body in order to provoke cathartic processes in Mina and do something for her. Mina hadn’t been in contact with her mother for years because of some dark family secrets. Simon plans to keep the body hidden for a few days and then to revive the diseased woman. He possesses such powers. However, the body is stolen from Simon and as he is trying to get it back he runs into troubles. At the same time, unaware of Simon’s problems, Mina is confronting her past and emotional baggage she’s been carrying for years.
