Almost Heaven follows Ying Ling, a 17 year-old girl far from home, as she trains to become a mortician in one of China’s largest funeral homes. An intimate, tender and life-affirming portrait of a young woman on the cusp of adulthood.
“Almost Heaven draws a vibrant, human story out of seemingly average lives that fit with neither the glamour nor the grime of most screen portraits.” Hollywood Reporter
