BACK IN BUSINESS

by Gérard Pautonnier

synopsis

In a small town in the middle of nowhere, Edmond Zweck's funeral home is struggling to make ends meet. Zweck now only has two employees, his right-hand man, Georges, and young Eddy, who is new to the business. One fine morning, a dead body turns up at last, and their hope is renewed. Georges and Eddy are sent out to deliver the coffin to its final resting place.
