During the funeral, an employee of the funeral house discloses weird events that are happening in his job. In her investigation, Ruth finds dark and macabre secrets. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Another episode that wasn't my thing. Again, the first minute is one to watch but afterwards nothing really happens. The only thing they do is researching what is happening with the corpses. Once the reunion takes place you easily will know what's going on. The storyline is a bit based on a real event with Uruguayan Air Force Flight 571 better known as the Andes flight disaster the October 13, 1972. The survivors only survived by eating the death ones. The story we have here is the same. only the last minute is Hammerstyle. It's a bit of a shame that it's all blah blah in between. No in view killings, no blood, no gore, no nothing. And knowing that this was aired as episode 2...
