Synopsis

In the heat of summer, Yoshiko gets a phone call telling her that her grandfather has died while she is having sex with her boyfriend. And so begins the funeral of her grandfather complete with slovenly uncle, angry aunt, shut-in cousin and grandma with dementia. Yoshiko marvels that nobody cries, and she witnesses bad family behavior like she has never seen before. She starts thinking about the lofty concepts of life and death, and becomes more determined than ever to visit the Ganges River in India where people believe they can free their souls for eternity.
