A cemetery in the centre of Berlin. An undertaker who actually wanted to become an entertainer. And who is now the last companion of all those who are buried by the state authorities. A chapel in which a black urn is laid out and Beethoven playing on a continuous loop. The undertaker sits there and waits. Sometimes people come to pay their last respects – or bring the new delivery for the next week. Rest in peace.
