A complex but beautifully layered film, using the Requiem structure of three movements and 12 acts, which intertwines stories about Alexander the Great, Frédéric Chopin's death and elements from Van der Werve's own life in a poetic, exceptionally cinematic manner. When Chopin died in Paris, his sister smuggled his heart back to his homeland. Van der Werve followed the heart's 1500-kilometre route from Warsaw to Paris by swimming, cycling and running seven times the distance of an Ironman triathlon.
