Today, Marianne is accompanying a friend to her mother-in-law’s funeral. But if there’s one place she doesn’t want to be, it’s in a cemetery. It is difficult for her to forget her fear of rubbing shoulders with people in pain, and she is very embarrassed by this appointment, which comes under the umbrella of death. For a day, she will discover a family that leads her to see things in a different way.
