Maja’s life is finally coming together and her boyfriend couldn’t be more pleased. In the midst of moving out of the student flat they share, Maja’s evening takes a surprising turn when she stumbles upon an old relative who is, without a doubt, dead. Nobody from the family is available to help, so Maja has to deal with the situation herself. As she waits for the authorities, Sara, Maja’s childhood friend, joins her. Sara is more than keen on sharing her latest successes. Hours pass and the pair are stuck with the dead body. Absurd situations arise. Are they allowed to eat beside a corpse? Did the dead woman just move her hand? And what is the proper way to say goodbye to someone you didn’t even know?
