Synopsis „This life is just a test! If it wasn’t a test we would have been given further instructions on what to do and where to go.” This short film depicts the desperation of a young man, Wigald, who only has one last wish – suicide. Wigald is the epitome of a starving poet, whose lack of income to support his passion for verse and general frustration with the world has left him struggling with his inner demons. This film witnesses a succession of attempts to end his life, comically to no avail.
