When it’s time to say goodbye: a humorous and deeply sad story about self-determined death.

Every year without fail, Hannes, his wife Kiki and their closest friends go on a bike tour. This time it’s Hannes’ turn to choose the destination. For some strange reason he has selected Belgium and the others aren't excited at first. Nevertheless, the trip starts well and the group of friends has a lot of fun until Hannes makes an announcement and tells them the reason why he chose Belgium: he is terminally ill, and wants to end his life on his own terms. In Belgium, medically assisted suicide is legal. This trip with his wife and friends will be his final ride. After the shock has subsided, the group decides to pedal hard and enjoy a wild time to fulfil Hannes’ last wish. Till their arrival at the clinic, his friends want to fully enjoy and celebrate life from the heart with Hannes.
