Victor, the doctor treating him, suggests euthanasia. Without consulting her boyfriend and her mother, Marina agrees to the suggestion. After his death, Marina receives a phone call from her father. No one believes her, so she becomes increasingly alienated from her family. She only finds support and understanding with Victor. He believes in an `Unknown Time': the time when someone who died an unnatural death can seek contact with those who stared in to the eyes of the dying. Marina grows closer to Victor, but it is not clear whether he only acted in friendship.
