Those who remain try to heal and make sense of the unexpected loss.

There, people are able to leave messages for the departed and fight the passage of time, trying to keep the memories of loved ones alive. The astounding plot plays out into the next century, in several different languages. Performed in French, Arabic, Vietnamese, and English with supertitles."
