At a funeral home death is something that may become a daily routine. And it is also where some kind of performance is taking place. 'The last performance' is a behind-the-scenes look at the place where funeral rites are prepared.

En una funeraria la muerte es algo que puede llegar a ser cotidiano y rutinario. También es el espacio donde tiene lugar una puesta en escena. De función nos ofrece una mirada hacia los bastidores donde se prepara el rito funerario.
