Jung is a mortician at the morgue who has to heavily rely on medicine for his severe tuberculosis and arthritis. Despite his illness, Jung finds cleansing and dressing the dead a noble and even beautiful act. For him, his life at the morgue is both a reality and a fantasy while the corpses are his models and friends for his paintings, his sole living pleasure.
The Weight was the winner of the Queer Lion prize at the Venice Film Festival.
