A reconstruction of the preparations for a prisoner’s last meal prior to their execution turns into a reflection on the position of capital punishment and its associated rituals in today’s society. The film combines documentary material with in-depth stylization, iconic installations and animation. It is an excursion into cultural history, and symbolic feasting becomes a source for the imagination.


Since the start of their collaboration in 1986, the Stockholm-based artistic duo of Lars Bergström (1962) and Mats Bigert (1965) have produced various creative projects focused on current scientific and social themes, emphasizing humanity, nature, and technology.
