Mrs. J, a former administrative clerk, decides to complete all her obligations: wash a sink full of dishes, go to the store, dig up an old family pistol. Her late husband's pistol. She is determined to kill herself with that gun on the anniversary of her husband's death. In a week 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. To die is even more complicated.
