Living for the Dead

In India where millions don’t even get dignity in life, asking for dignity in death is a far cry. Every year thousands of unclaimed bodies are found in the country, with no one undertaking to give them a decent cremation or burial with due rituals. But there are a handful of people who perform an unusual social service – of giving these unclaimed bodies a dignified passage to the next life. Living for the Dead takes viewers on an emotional journey through the eyes of three individuals who perform this extraordinary service recounting their experiences and providing an insight into modern day India. Living for the Dead chronicles their struggles, hopes and seeks to uncover their lives as they continue to perform a service that few take up.
