When Iris (29) completely unexpectedly hears from her father Jan (74) that he has had enough of life, she is forced to face the absurdity of the situation. As his unsettling deadline approaches, Iris decides to ignore the action plan of her family. She takes Jan to the snow-covered mountains of Slovenia to find a way of dealing with her father’s last wish.
