At later age the Jewish painter Jozef Heine becomes conscience-smitten for his role at the events in Sabra and Sjatila and the death of his first wife Rachel, which is inextricably bound up with that. When he, on his sixtieth birthday, wakes up with a terrible hangover and a destroying pain in his genitals, he fears that the final countdown has started. He decides that he himself will put a stop to it at the right moment. But before that time comes, he wants to make a clean sweep and let his life change course. He will no longer paint pornographic pop-art, but real art instead. He will make an end of his relation with Julia, the nude model he lives with. If necessary he will even turn back to the Middle East and give his all for peace. All his good intentions are taken down when little later he finds the lifeless body of Julia at the bottom of the stairs and realizes that he killed her in a drunk fit. If he doesn’t want to spend the last few months of his life in prison, then he’ll have to make her body dissapear. To Heine that is almost an impossible task. And his life doesn’t become any easier when he also crosses the path of the fugitive Sofie Moons, who has just escaped from the prison of Ghent.
