8 women and men, young and old, tell us in a personal and intimate way of their dead, their mourning and their funerals.
The unassumingly filmed interviews are interlaced with rhythmic pictures allowing the spectator to breathe, to regain time. Pictures of water, mountains or clouds, of cities.
This film about death, mourning and consolation shall evoke reflections, shall help to reduce the solitude in one's proper mourning.
