Three twentysomethings out of Sunday morning apathy attend the wrong funeral and life itself becomes apparent.
For Dani who realises he has no idea of what 'falling in love' means, the death of an unknown guy who shared the same girlfriend turns out to be very important to understand his own father's death and past relationships.
