It's a big day in the life of a little girl, as she is finally being inducted into the family business—embalming dead bodies. With her older brother as her instructor, the young girl asks; "why do people die?". The brother tells her he will answer her question, but only once they are done embalming the dead woman that lies in front of them. Hoping to buy time, he struggles to come up with an answer to a question he is not sure how to handle.
