(The man who tried to outsmart Death)
The poet Waldemar allows Marianne, initially very reluctantly, to make a pass at him. In the shortest possible time a stormy romance develops. Waldemar thinks that Marianne is the only woman in his life who appreciates the Truth like he does. But they are not fated to spend much time together. When Marianne hears that she has leukaemia and is terminal, she seems to take in this message with stoic calm. Waldemar, however, is desperate and suggests that they commit suicide together. This event, which is to take place in Marianne’s favourite church, works out differently from planned. After Marianne has suited the action to the word, Waldemar, who is sitting beside her, stiffens up. He does not dare go any further and gets terribly upset. Slowly he slides into an unknown world.
