SYNOPSIS:

Dead or alive is a vivid documentary relating the lives and livelihoods of workers in the funeral industry. Death is taboo in society where the chimera of eternal youth is triumphant. Has the frantic race to achieve in Quebec make people forget that the only real race is beyond us? How do we perceive those who have come to grips with death and are facing it in our place?
