Pero is a professional funeral speaker in a small Slovenian town. His unique gift is to make every funeral that extra bit special. Pero just can‘t help turning his eulogies into witty personal confessions that bring the grieving crowd to tears for all the wrong reasons. At home Pero is busy trying to intercept his father‘s frequent but hopelessly inept suicide attempts. Meanwhile he also seeks to win the heart of local girl Renata, who bears secrets beneath her innocent blonde curls.
