We all know death is inevitable part of life. But no matter how much you embrace that fact, death will always be personal. We have spent thousands of years searching for the answer what happens to our bodies when we die?

Some of us solve that problem while alive. We decide to donate our organs after we are dead. How do we as humans find meaning in death?

This documentary takes a look into death traditions and rituals all around the world. Some of us chose cremating, some embalming, and some donate their organs.

There are not many ways you can find meaning in death, but for some people, that is more important than living. Take a look around the different traditions and rituals around the world.
