30 Milligram

The ongoing crisis sent society spiraling downward. Already known for their progressive thinking, the Dutch government passed a law stating that all people born between '45 and '55 should be euthanized, ‘to give their grandchildren the future that was removed from them.' Two men are tasked with the implementation of this law. Although clearly understaffed, they at least try to take pride in their work. But as the assignments increasingly take their toll emotionally, tension rises... and their work suffers.
