Morbid

A young couple are preparing to go out for a night on the town. The guy has everything planned down to the smallest detail. The girl is lying on the sofa – dead. The boyfriend, unable to get to grips with the fact that she is dead, has been living in a dreamworld since the accident.

She is very much alive in his thoughts and they are happy. He is dancing with her, but when she suddenly falls to the floor he realizes the grotesque situation he is in. He decides to follow her to the grave and plans a fullhearted suicide.

The doorbell rings. He gets up and opens the door, and suddenly there she is: Standing in front of him smiling. He looks back and sees both their dead bodies lying on the floor.
