Emil, Bruno, Fritz and Dieter-Thomas are four fit pensioners and old friends. They want to refresh their friendship with a cozy golf weekend in the mountains. Having just arrived at the hotel, Emil confronts his friends with serious news: he is terminally ill and has decided to put an end to his life with a deadly pill here and now with his friends. Now he asks the men for nothing less than to support him. The responses to this request could not be more different.
