The Last Word is a forthcoming Netflix series starring Anke Engelke.
Synopsis: In their 25 years of marriage they’ve shared wonderful moments and good times, had children, fought, and made up. But when her husband Stephan (Johannes Zeiler) dies unexpectedly, Karla (Anke Engelke) is quickly confronted with secrets they had never discussed. Her shock, pressing financial worries and her doubts over her husband’s loyalty push Karla to rush into applying to work with funeral director Borowski (Thorsten Merten) as a eulogist. She’s unapologetic, loud, and unconventional. Karla ignores her own life until she’s surrounded by total chaos and has to ask herself: is there a right way to grieve? And if there is, what’s her right way?
The Last Word looks great and is on Netflix from September 17th.
