Described as a “disturbing existential wake-up call”, Suicide Tourist follows Max Isaksen (Coster-Waldau), an insurance claims adjuster who is investigating the disappearance of a married man named Arthur. The trail will lead him to the Aurora Hotel, a remote, secretive luxury resort that has a particular speciality: assisting its guests to fulfil their fantasy suicides.
