Synopsis

Characters: 5 female
A tragicomedy.
After a vigorous life a videly experienced middle-aged business man has committed suicide. Before his tragic end, he invited five of the women closest to him to see him off on his last journey: his mother, his first wife, his present wife, his mistress, and his nurse.
At the chapel and at the coffee gathering after the funeral at the widow's apartment, the women discuss their relations to the deceased, to each other and to life in general. Through the discussion, there evolves a highly diversified and somewhat surprising image of the dead man.
