Toni Servillo, as a mysterious nameless character, loads four strangers into his old car on the night when they decide to end their lives. The man gives them a week to give themselves a second chance, to fall back in love with life and save themselves. It’s a sort of limbo in which the four protagonists observe what the world would be like without them and decide to return to life. Day after day, these four dead men walking are alternately confronted with their traumas. They are at first deprived of their senses, which they then do gradually. Initially mistrustful of each other, the four would-be suicides begin to sympathize and make new connections with each other, even if not all of them will be able to reverse their decisions and re-emerge from their darkness. Predictability is a bit of a blemish in this work, along with a couple of unconvincing suicide motivations that prevent the viewer from empathizing with the respective characters.
