Take a look beyond the tombstone in this documentary exploring the ever-changing roles that cemeteries play in society and the silent legacies that lie chiseled in stone awaiting discovery by future generations. Though once viewed as a sort of social gathering place where tired city dwellers could go escape the hustle and bustle of the overcrowded cities, cemeteries have since evolved into a quiet place of rest where the dead tell tales of immeasurable joy, everlasting love, rending heartache, and devastating tragedy. Each cemetery is filled with tales too numerous to mention, but in this release that tours graveyards from Alaska to Key West, viewers can get an illuminating peek into a fascinating and eternal world of rest and wonder.
