Synopsis

Tibo has a serious condition: boredom. He works as a nurse on a palliative care floor, and all he can think of lately is money. Once and a while, he tries to break the routine by placing bets with his co-workers on the last breath of dying patients. All in vain. One day, his colleague Anouk asks him for a favor. Whether Tibo would like to spend the day with Frans Claeskens, the only patient without any friends or family, because today Frans will undergo euthanasia. A big ask for everyone who knows the racist and perverted Frans Claeskens.
