Tibo has a serious condition: boredom. He is a nurse on a palliative care ward, and all he can think of lately is money. Once in a while, he tries to break the routine by placing bets with his co-workers on the last breath of dying patients. All in vain. One day, his colleague Anouk asks for a favour: would Tibo share racist Frans Claeskens’s last day?
