Mr. and Mrs. Ashley Carter are a couple with a peculiar fixation: they're fascinated with the rituals and trappings of death. They bring flowers to the burials of transients; they eavesdrop on the will-readings of people they've never met. But when a man they've never met inexplicably bequeathes his cremated remains to them, the detachment they've always maintained between themselves and the mourners they mingle with begins to crumble. As they uncover the circumstances surrounding the man's demise, their investigation draws them ever closer to the heart of their own obsession: death itself.
