Documentary exploring a variety of unusual and memorable ways in which deaths are marked, meeting people planning to make their final event something to remember, as well as businesses that offer the necessary services. Featured are a 78-year-old man who has commissioned a bright orange, aeroplane-shaped coffin, a woman who took her mother's corpse on a four-day trip around her favourite spots before digging the grave, and a man who has made death masks for director Ken Russell and music impresario Malcolm McLaren. Darren Abey promotes his Only Fools and Horses hearses and Julie White takes the radical step of having her husband's ashes tattooed into her skin.
