A pioneer, Christelle Cuinet is fighting for the profession of end-of-life biographer: she records the words of people close to the end, and turns it into a book that will be offered to their loved ones. An eternal trace of these lives.
She goes where no one goes. At this place where the next death is inevitable but where transmission is still possible.
Between palliative care services and the home of the sick, the film follows Christelle raising the question of what one wishes to pass on to those who remain.
The time of the book and the biographer’s particularly benevolent approach allow these people to tell each other. Between anecdotes, secrets and advice, like the mirrors of these singular trajectories, they feel listened to at a time when the circumstances of their lives give emerge a strong need for transmission, balance sheet.
