Drama­tised docu­men­tary which tackles the ques­tion of euthanasia in an unusual way. The film shows the well-known colum­nist for Amster­dam’s daily Het Parool visits his mother (81) with his girl­friend Karin. Within 5 minutes the atmos­phere can be cut with a knife. Holman’s mother talks about her expe­ri­ences in a concen­tra­tion camp and also brings up her desire for euthanasia for the umpteenth time. The colum­nist doesn’t want to know and brushes aside her ideas as romantic kitsch by women’s magazines.
