A farmer's father is on his deathbed the day before the harvest. A local priest is summoned, and funeral preparations begin. The funeral feast is cut short when the dying man appears to still be breathing. When the 'dead' body lets out a startling moan, it is certain that the man is still alive. The solution is left in the hands of the eccentric local peasants. A matter of life and death, this dark comedy is perfect for those who enjoyed NBC's 'The Good Place'. Guy de Maupassant (1850-1893) was a French writer. Famed for being a master of the short story, he also wrote travel books and occasionally dabbled in poetry. His stories mainly focus on the relationships between men and women sitting at crossroads in their lives - whether personal or professional. His dramatic flair is largely influenced by French novelist Gustave Flaubert and is perfect for fans of Anton Chekhov's short stories. The most notable of the 300 short stories that he wrote include 'Bel Ami', 'Une Vie', and 'The Dumpling'.
