Brief synopsis

Thomas dies. But what he witnesses on the other side is under no circumstances what he expected. Suddenly he is sitting in a waiting room, like one in a registration office. There, in a strange way, he undergoes injustices, which are often caused by faite and death. "The Ticket" surprises and provokes. Humorous and dramatic elements are mixed together to manufacture an extraordinary and moving film, that makes the audience laugh, but rather cry.
