Two eccentric millionaires have been married for 53 years. Kornelius is the dominant one. Adelheid always goes along with everything without objection. Both lead an individualistic, ascetic and sustainable lifestyle and have a mutually symbiotic relationship. Kornelius’ cancer diagnosis abruptly brings home the fragility of life. From then on, Adelheid prepares herself for widowhood. She begins to emancipate herself and wants to become more independent, for she suspects that she will outlive her beloved husband.
