Jung works in a mortuary, preparing the dead for burial. At times, he seems to be closer to the dead than to the living, as he flits like a hunch-backed, coughing ghost through the corridors. But Jung applies the same devotion that he dedicates to the dead also to the living, in particular to his adopted brother, who dreams of being a woman. And when the weight of the real world threatens to crush him, he escapes into his own fantasy worlds. A quiet, intense film full of poetry about outsiders, despair, dignity and dreams.
