Igor Kaurus is a documentarist who is trying to make a documentary about death. His only assistant in this production is Pedro, a young filmmaker who is hired to be the camera operator.

They are helped by a palliative care doctor who tells them that the terminal patient goes through a grief process when discovers that he has not much time left to live.

So, they look for families that have already dealt with the grief process and try to learn with them. The first one is the family of an old musician. Three years before, his wife had received a three months life expectation, but she was still alive. Igor interviews the family and gets close to them to understand that death makes the human experience extremely intimate.
