Thomas Schubert is Roman Kogler, a kid who's serving time in a juvenile detention center. He has a day job as a morgue attendant. He is socially awkward and can't connect with anybody. Can he find the connection that he so desperately need?
This movie moves rather slowly. It meanders along as we follow Roman around. There isn't anything dramatic going on until the final third of the movie. So we're relying on this being a character study.
