Meet two characters, blessed with eternal life but denied eternal youth. As they stumble through their bizarre existence, neither fully alive nor fully dead, they attempt to reclaim the right to a good death as they try to remember how to grieve.

Comedy duo Ridiculusmus reclaims humankind's last taboo from imminent eradication, in a fragile farce about ageing, dying and grieving - a blend of symbolist mysticism and synesthesia that has the fear of ageing in its sights and oozes with the positivity of elderhood and good deaths.
