Brief synopsis

A tragicomic, truthful and painful encounter at a cemetery within a more and more anonymous world.
While Romy, paid for “grieving” at strangers graves, learns to let her repressed emotions back in and open up to the world, the whirlwindy Mona starts to find peace within her angry sorrow.
