Warden of the Dead / Ilian Simeonov

Athirteen-year-old kid lives and works in a cemetery.The cemetery is his whole life, and growing up with the dead instills in him an obsession and respect for death. His friends depend on him: an unhappy old man, a former political prisoner yearning for death and a makeup artist for the deceased, a former artist who dreams of painting a masterpiece. Bringing people together or helping them die, the boy has only one aim – to make them happy.
