Daigo, a devoted cellist, finds himself without work when his orchestra is dissolved. Unable to find further work as a musician, he persuades his wife to move with him back to his hometown. There he replies to a vacancy advert which he thinks is for a travel agency. However it turns out to be a job in a funeral parlour preparing the bodies of the deceased for burial and entry into the next life. While others, including his wife, despise his new job - Daigo begins to take great care and pride in his new found profession. Winner of the 2008 best foreign feature Oscar.
