Niels, who is terminally ill, has one last wish before dying: a one-way trip to Switzerland. Maria, nurse in search of self-confidence, decides to help him.

Niels is an embittered man in his late thirties whose terminal illness has left him virtually paralysed. Niels is tired of living and has trouble coping with his miserable fate. Nurse Maria feels it is her duty to help him when he wants to go to Switzerland to end his life in a clinic. Niels needs medical attention and cannot travel alone, and both his mother and brother feel little urge to join him. Together they go on a road trip that takes them from Denmark through Hamburg to Switzerland. Niels can be completely obnoxious, making no effort to conceal the fact that he finds his nurse rather dopey. Yet mutual understanding grows and a special friendship develops between them as the journey proceeds.
