In Travento, a small Italian village, Roseanna’s final wish is that she be buried next to her daughter in the local graveyard. But with only three plots left and the ageing village population looking none too healthy, Roseanna’s devoted husband Marcello has to work overtime to deliver her request, preserving life wherever he can and hiding the odd corpse.

“There’s a good deal to like here, Weiland effectively captures the atmosphere and intricacies of rural Italy…quite charming.”
