At a dinner party, 74-year-old Jan announces to his children that he wants to end his life on his next birthday. Daughter Iris in particular reacts in shock and, out of anger and incomprehension for his decision, whisks her father away to the snowy mountains of Slovenia. She hopes to get answers and also find a way to deal with Jan's wish. The lightly directed drama PINK MOON sensitively and forcefully addresses the right to self-determined and dignified dying. "A film that shows my perception of the world and deals with my greatest fears," says director Floor van der Meulen about her debut.
Age rating: from 16 years
