Marian - a middle aged nurse and a secret poisoner - lives in two worlds. Our world, where she is a nurse, a colleague, a sister. When declared sick or dying, some of us are sent to her world - Planet Hospital. Marian is one of the white-uniformed, efficient distributors of help.
Death is a taboo in our world. But not in hers. Marian starts to work in a new hospital and moves into her new apartment in a high rise building on the outskirts of the city. Proceeds with her killing routine like a well oiled mechanism. One night she watches a rape from the window of her apartment. She is not the only one to do so. A man living in the same building sees the rape too. More so, he sees Marian watching.
What she has seen and the fact that she was seen start to disturb her life. Marian and the stranger engage in a dance of avoidance. Until now she hasn’t shared anything with humans but intimacy of death. Now she has to share a secret with a stranger - her neighbor. Outside world, our life, has invaded her life. To disturb her. To conquer her, death herself. (Quelle: http://www.festival-cannes.fr/en/cinefoundation/ficheFilmAtelier/id/11021279/year/2010.html)
