Gravedigger Max Broll and retired soccer star Baroni team up to find Max’s stepmother, the local police commissioner, who has been abducted and buried alive in the woods.
It is nothing but darkness around police commissioner Tilda and she has no idea where she is. Beside her, two bottles of juice and her cell phone – the only connection to the outside world. She calls her stepson, gravedigger Max Broll, and tells him that a man broke into her home, overpowered her, put her in a box and buried her somewhere in the woods. She remembers exactly who it was: Leopold Wagner, known as the “baby maker”, whom she sent to prison eighteen years ago. The police maintain it could not have been him – he is still behind bars. Only Max believes her. He is determined to find her, whatever it takes. While the police try to locate the cell phone and systematically comb the area, Broll and his friend Baroni use less conventional methods to force the truth out of Wagner. The clock is ticking – Tilda won`t survive more than 48 hours underground…

Cast: Laurence Rupp, Juergen Vogel, Bettina Redlich, Martin Wuttke
Harald Sicheritz: “Tension, feeling and humor”
“The story of 'Forever Dead' is hair-raisingly exciting and shows a lot of emotion. There's also something to laugh about at 'Broll + Baroni'. “I think that as a screenwriter and director I managed to pack all of that into the film,” says Harald Sicheritz, giving a first foretaste of the ORF 2 premiere.
And further: “In 'Broll + Baroni' we experience a full-time gravedigger and a retired professional footballer. A young and an old savage, two best friends, played by two of the best actors we currently have in Europe: Laurence Rupp and Jürgen Vogel. Around her are three of the best actresses we currently have in Europe: Hilde Dalik, Valery Cheplanova and Bettina Redlich. There’s also Martin Wuttke as the most evil villain.”
