Successful management consultant Charlotte has inherited her Uncle Olivier’s funeral parlour in Provence – but only half of it.
Having arrived in this rural idyll, she wants to sell the enchanting château and make a profit as quickly as possible. But André, the young undertaker and Olivier’s foster-son thwarts her plans. Half of the business belongs to him and he has absolutely no intention of giving up Olivier’s life's work. Uncle Olivier had the foresight to add a stipulation to his will: namely, that the two heirs had to agree on what to do with the château.
