Mrs. J, a former administrative clerk, decides to complete all her chores: wash a sink full of dishes, go to the store, and dig up an old family pistol. Her late husbands pistol. She is determined to kill herself with that gun on the anniversary of her husbands death. In a week’s time. She is prepared to finish all private and administrative works so that she may commit suicide in the way she wants. But to start doing all that she needs just one thing - a certificate about her employment over the past 20 years. In a country which is going through social transition, this will be highly complicated. Because living in transition is complicated. And to die is even more complicated.
