In Learning Love from Dead Women we are introduced to two characters known from literature; Ibsen's Hedda Gabler and Shakespear's Ophelia. The startingpoint of the video is their last scene, their scene of death. In the first act we find Ophelia lying in the water, she has just killed herself. Suddenly she wakes up and leaves the stage. In the next act the two women meet. During their short meeting they discuss their actions and especially their suicidal action. When Hedda understands that they don't have the same understanding of the act she takes on the role as a teacher and theaches Ophelia the nature of love.
