Wim and Marie, an ordinary Dutch couple, have been hiding Nico, a Jewish man, for many months during the Occupation, and seemingly without suspicion - but when Nico becomes ill and dies, they must find a way to dispose of the corpse. Their attempts take on almost farcical proportions, yet with a backdrop of one of the worst periods of world history, any notion of comedy must surely give way to a black ineluctable tragedy.
