Serious and funny moments alternate in this unusual road movie. Malte (Sven Wollter in his last role) is terminally ill and has an appointment for assisted suicide in Switzerland. He cannot hide this and so his nurse spontaneously decides to chauffeur him in her camper van. His demented best buddy, a friend from the Swedish retirement home and a young assistant accompany Malte to fulfil his last wishes, turning the trip into a real adventure. There is of course turmoil in this group of very different people, but in the end everyone benefits. Despite the serious subject matter, a life-affirming film!
