Cities on fire, storm clouds gather round, heavy rains descend – is death the end? This programme offers an alternative to closure; grief is tackled head-on with the unexpected as we span the globe and encounter wisdom through storytelling in wildly varying situations: in the Ukraine, death gradually leads to a re-birth through friendship, we travel to the Argentine Pampas to encounter a Greek-Creole western which invites man and horse to become one, a dead body in the Rotterdam harbour provokes a worker’s revolt through reflection and two elderly men meet involuntarily in a Norwegian diner to discuss anxieties, hopes, fears…and food.
