Who knows? In the next life, we may be born in a better body... Jung is a mortician at a morgue where he cleanses and dresses up the dead. Born with a hunchback, he lives each day with enduring the weight of life that oppresses him -his chronic illnesses, his prostituting pre-op trans brother, their tyrannical adoptive mother... His life is a mixture of reality and fiction as corpses become his friends and subjects of his imagination. Causing a sensation for its extreme scenes at Venice Film Festival where it premiered, The Weight is "a story about the weight of life that human beings carry around with them, like a grotesque fantasy."
