Gerhard, an early retiree plagued by a mysterious illness that limits his motor skills, decides to turn over a new leaf in his life: he sells his apartment in Vienna and moves in with his girlfriend, cab driver Amy, in Chiang Mai. With the little money he has he pays off Amy’s family house and with the help of Thai doctors starts looking for a cure. But new ills emerge when Gerhard makes inquiries about the payments for the house and Amy suddenly disappears.

GOOD LIFE DEAL tells the story of a relationship driven diverging dependencies and motives and oscillates between humorous lightness and dramatic seriousness.
