Television play about an idealistic student who tries to live and express his faith in God, people and nature as consistently as possible. When he discovers that it is almost impossible to live your life without making compromises, he elects to die. The self-chosen death of 20-year-old Job makes his parents, little sister and friend think. One by one they discover the rituals that stood in the way of an honest relationship with Job. Despite all their best intentions, their lack of courage to take sides drove Job into isolation. Job's death and this new realisation will change them for good.
