From the director who brought us the Oscar-nominated (and 2011 NaFF selection) Dogtooth. A nurse, a paramedic, a gymnast and her coach have formed a service for hire. They stand in for dead people by appointment, hired by the relatives, friends or colleagues of the deceased. The company is called Alps. Their leader, the paramedic, calls himself Mont Blanc. Although Alps members operate under a discipline regime demanded by their leader, the nurse does not. Preceded by short film: The inviolability of the domacile relies on the an who appears wielding an axe in the doorway of the house.
