Synopsis

Sandra has had a morbid fascination with death since she was a little girl. So much that she takes a job in a local funeral parlor, managed by the troubled Mr Wallis. So begins her initiation into the funeral industry and the closed world of undertakers. While studying embalming at the library one day, she meets Matt, a medical student. Matt makes a play for Sandra’s affections, only to find that her passion for death exceeds any love she might feel for him.
