A life-affirming story about an undertaker.

Co-produced with De Røde Heste.

Here is what we know about the undertaker. He does what udertakers do, he takes care of the dead.  Here is what we don't know about the undertaker: he talks with the dead! And the dead happily talks. This about paradise is just something the undertaker makes up in order to comfort a young girl, who died much too early.

But maybe it's true.... maybe Paradise exists


"....Humorous ease and great human depth."
