Pioneer Christelle Cuinet is fighting to establish her profession. She is an end-of-life biographer who records the words of people close death, and transforms them into books to preserve an enduring trace of their lives, which can be given to loved-ones.. She travels to places where no one else goes.To places where death is imminent but transmission is still possible. The film, which follows Christelle to palliative care units and the homes of the terminally ill, raises the question of what we want to pass on to those we will leave behind.

The time devoted to the book and the biographer’s particularly gentle approach helps her subjects to speak freely.  Delivering anecdotes, secrets and advice that hold a mirror to their individual stories, they feel they are being heard at a time when the circumstances of their lives have prompted a strong desire to communicate and to give account.
