A movie about how the fear of death can lead to a fear of life.Flemming and the Meaning is the story of a hypochondriac who is told he's going to die.Instead of becoming distressed by the news, he becomes extremely happy and at peace with himself, pleased to finally have convinced the world that the illness he's suffering from truly is terminal.But is it true? Is he actually about to die? Can he trust the doctor's dire diagnosis?We all have a Flemming inside of us - some of us just find it more difficult to control him than others....The movie is a tribute to life, and the joie de vivre that can be lost if one gets too preoccupied with death.
