After the sudden death of his wife, the not-so-young Georg Weiser obstinately but unsuccessfully, and against the wishes of his adult children, tries to continue his unhappy life. Until life intervenes - in the form of his cleaning lady, who teaches him that this life is perhaps a little more complex than he would like to admit.
