(Akt utan nad)
1F / 3M

Albert's father has just died, his urn is still in the hallway. The homeless bum Schiller comes over and, without further ado, moves in with Albert, mothering him and offering his help for the upcoming funeral. Soon after, a second guest, Stang, moves in, claiming to be the lover of Schiller's estranged daughter. Stang and Albert develop a bond - both are violent, have a criminal record, and now they are even planning a bank heist together. Schiller is shocked and disappears, only to return with a drunken girl. It remains unsaid what happens to the girl, but after a fight, the three men leave the run-down apartment for good. The house is to be demolished, the urn remains where it is.
