Alpeis: Alps

Loading...
"An oddball group of four people (made up of two hospital employees, a gymnast, and her coach) form a secret society that sets out to ease the grieving process for those whose loved ones have died. For a fee they will act the part of the missing family member -- learning their hobbies and eccentricities -- in order to help the customer accept their loss. As methadone is to heroin addiction, so are the Alps, as they call themselves, to the mourning process. But when the nurse known as Monte Rosa begins to attach too deeply to her subjects, their project spirals out of control into violence and confusion."--Container.
