Synopsis

During the shooting of the film about St. Bernard, 60-year old doctor Tomas Berg, explores man's preparation for death. This lively, ironic, successful man never thought about death, its possible tortures and religion. Suddenly, Tomas is terminally ill. Even an expensive operation in one of the best clinics abroad cannot prevent his death. With the realization that his days are limited, the old doctor faces a dilemma: to commit suicide and put an end to his tortures, or to resist the trials of the fate and turn to religion.
