Under a pseudonym, Irene accompanies individuals on their way to ‘gentle’ encounter with death. But everything changes when she meets Carlo Grimaldi, an elderly man who reveals that he is not suffering from a terminal illness, but simply wants to put an end to it all. A relationship develops between the two of them that will lead the young woman to reflect deeply on what she is doing.
