LIVING FOR THE DEAD



In the journey of life, death is the final truth. Everyone hopes and wishes for a death with dignity.


In a country of more than a billion people, where many don’t even find dignity in life, asking for a venerable end is hoping for the impossible. This documentary is a heartrending, emotional journey into the lives of the few exceptional individuals who have found meaning to their lives through the dead and dying.


One of them is a man who has performed over 1500 creations on unclaimed bodies and has kept a meticulous record of the deceased – dog eared files, tattered diaries, photographs – in case the family someday comes looking for the dead relative.


The protagonists are common people who have turned personal tragedies into inspiring stories of hope and humanity.
