SYNOPSIS: The story is about an elderly couple, husband and wife, who think about their life together after death. The wife takes the fact of dying very jokingly, she knows that she has little time left and wants to make sure her husband takes care of everything. The husband seems indifferent, but in reality he truly loves her and for this reason he agrees with all her requests, hiding something himself. A story inspired by the director’s family experience, a bit ironic but very emotional, of a true love that will last forever.
