    This documentary shows the very first experiment ever done in the process of grief in which bereaved family members are having an artificial video conversation with their deceased loved through the use of new digital techniques and under the guidance of a renowned grief therapist.
    The bereaved are recalling precious memories, asking burning question and confronting unfinished business from the past.
    Although the technique sometimes struggles to keep up the illusion, it does not seem to matter to the bereaved family members. The suspension of disbelief is stronger than the shortcomings of the technique.
