Still suffering from her mother's recent suicide, a delusional young girl falls for an alluring Goth, against the objections of a life-size talking doll. The Melancholy Fantastic is a psychological thriller set during the holidays.
The film takes place during the Christmas holiday and weaves various existential themes into the story. The title of the screenplay was inspired by Søren Kierkegaard's The Sickness Unto Death. In the film, one of the central characters, a Danish Goth named Dukken, paraphrases from Søren Kierkegaard's book and Friedrich Nietzsche's Parable of the Madman. Central elements of the narrative also involve the opening and closing text from Albert Camus' The Stranger (novel).
