19-year-old Roman Kogler is a loner. He is closed-off, awkward, angry, a bit lost – and he is staying in a juvenile detention center. As a day-release prisoner he is allowed to leave jail for a job, but his colleagues at the varying workplaces don’t make it easy for the young delinquent. Not that Roman helps his case much – his solitary character and his uncommunicative way sabotage many employment options. He just doesn’t seem to be fit for re-socialization.

After many failed attempts, Roman finds a probation job at the municipal morgue in Vienna and of all things; it is this job dealing with death that shows him the path back to life.

This lauded first feature of actor-turned-director Karl Markovics (he starred in the 2008 Best Foreign Language Academy Award Winner “The Counterfeiters”) uses active, meticulously composed visuals, to show a young man slowly integrating himself into the world, and the world, much more slowly, learning to take him back. It exposes some valuable things about redemption and prisoner reintegration.
