What do you think, Mr. Goldbeck?

Isn't she perfect, Mrs. Goldbeck?

Where's she from?

Oh, yes.

You're not allowed to tell us.

Blacks have an advantage.

Our earth is getting hotter.

We're vulnerable, they're resistant.

He seems so...


Does he know what awaits him?

Sure! He read the same documents as you.

He knows what he's doing.

Those are beautiful sculptures,

Dr. Menzel.

Thank you.


Yes. I buy them whenever I'm there.

Do you collect as well?


I was only in Africa once.

In Cairo.

With me. A cello concert.

My wife was a cellist.

A long time ago.

Take off your clothes, please.

Please take off your tracksuit.

Both passed all somatic

and psychosomatic tests.

Cognitive and emotional world: Excellent.

Regenerative abilities: Excellent.

Blood values, libido: Excellent.

Isn't he rather...


Is that a problem for you?

No, no...

Do you have any other...


None with synaptic connections

that fit yours so perfectly.

And the price is fixed?

I can't do this...

Mrs. Goldbeck,

try to look at it another way.

With all the money those two earn,

their families back home can survive.

The younger brothers and sisters can go to

school, perhaps even attend university.

They surely both have large families,


And keep in mind:

The decisive cerebral characteristics

are impressively compatible to yours.

What do you mean?

Their brains show a potentially existing

physiological force of attraction.

They're a couple?

In spirit only, Mrs. Goldbeck.

The Roman philosopher Juvenal said:

Pray to the gods

for a sound mind and healthy body.

"Mens sana in corpore sano."

Let's talk to people who have fulfilled

their dream for an extraordinary life.

Thanks to Menzana, I have the chance

to start all over again.

It's totally insane...

Don't you think so, too?

Let's take a trip, Anna.

Somewhere we've never been.

Far away from here...

We'll rent a boat, with crew and captain.

Like in the old days.

Two, three months in paradise.

Hello, captain.

Hello. Pay, please.

For a car and two adults.

That's rather expensive, my friend.

Keep the change...

The rest can go into the treasure chest.

But you have to give me your nose for it.

Hey! Give it back! That's my nose!

Now you have it.

My paradise is here, Hermann.

Together with you,

sitting in the sun...

Drinking coffee...

And when you do it alone?

You know what I mean...

not the trip.

Hey, Babou.

Where is it?! Where is it?!

Yes, there it is.

When we were young,

time was unimportant.

We knew we would grow old together.

Dying was for other people.

When we got old and our time on earth

became shorter,

we wished that

we would go down together...

My butterfly! a plane.

We thought, then neither one of us

would have to suffer alone on earth.

That was out, big man!



How's Anna doing?

We were there...

At Menzana.

Otto, please! Keep your mouth shut.

I was against it.

Tomorrow, I'll probably be interested.

Have you looked at their stocks?

And. Do you ever consider it?

Buying stocks?

To do it.

Are you still all there?

- Hello, Hermann.

- Gerald.

You'll remember Friday, right?

Do you really think people do something

like that by choice?

Hey, Babou. What is it? Babou?

What's wrong?

Anna! My darling, I'm here. It's okay,

my butterfly, everything's fine...

Your wife has another two months.

Maybe even three.

We can no longer operate.

The metastases have spread everywhere.



That bad?

I don't want to live without you...

When you go, I'm coming with you.

What do you want to do?
