It is highly probable that before one's own death, everyone has to organise someone else’s funeral. In addition to grief, dying also brings a number of tasks that are at once utterly alien and intensely time critical. Dovile, who unexpectedly has to bury her father, has to face the bedlam of exactly such a challenge. Overnight, the young girl has to become a skilful organiser of a family event, while also being a specialist on coffins, urns, wreaths and funeral feasts. Dovile’s journey towards organising a perfect funeral is inevitably full of hardship and mishaps. On top of that, during this strange and hectic time, she is haunted by memories of her childhood. Poignant and filled with off-beat humour, this is a charming feature film debut.
