    • Synopsis
    • Three women accept a part-time job to be the professional mourners for a traditional Chinese funeral. In Filipino-Chinese tradition, women from the backstreets of Manila's Chinatown are hired to cry at funerals, so that the gods, when they see a lot of people mourning the person's death, would think the departed had been good and kind on earth. This would expedite the deceased person's entry unto heaven.
