Happy funeral

Many people think that the fear of death is insuperable. Sergey Yakushin, the director of the largest crematorium in Siberia, disagrees.
He rehearses his own funeral to overcome this fear.
He is the first in Russia to offer people a lifelong funeral contract and to arrange for their last day beforehand.
People come to the crematorium to get an answer to the most important question in their life.
