A young and unsure man named ANTHONY stands at the crest of a hilltop
cemetery overlooking a city before MONICA approaches him. Monica, a coolly
and apathetic longtime friend, is anxious to get out of this place, but
Anthony faces indecision to pick that certain ‘spot’ yet. REX, the
business-like guy in charge of the family cemetery, reaches Monica and the
talks of negotiating the price of a plot purchase resumes. Rex encourages
Monica to take a cheaper area of the cemetery at $400. Monica explains
that Anthony wants a plot on the hill at $700, higher than what they can
Suddenly a solar-powered smacks Rex in the head, causing him to drop his
papers and topple to the ground. A loud fight ensues between two young,
offbeat teenagers: KATIE and JOSH. Before Katie wrestles Josh under her
mercy, Rex splits their fight and scolds them for their behavior of
“disrupting the atmosphere”. Monica joins them and sees a bizarre sight:
two excessively decorated graves as the byproduct of a year-long
after-school hobby (and contest) between the two teens. Monica wonders why
Rex has allowed these two loud youngsters to remain on the grounds for so
long. Rex explains his deep debt to the teenagers due to a large number of
referrals and a case of mischief that prevented a lawsuit of switched
bodies in a past funeral.
Once Rex leaves to find his papers, Monica notices that Anthony has
disappeared and goes to search for him. The teens spot a depressed Anthony
wandering somewhere else on the grounds, unaware of his identity, and
speculate his purpose for visiting the cemetery. Suddenly, Anthony
collapses and through a brief montage, the story reveals that he is the
one to die. The two teens, Rex and Monica race to Anthony’s help, but
Anthony recovers consciousness and refuses to take his pills. When he
struggles against his medication and his pills spill all over the ground,
Monica is no longer frustrated with him; she is enraged.
As they watch the argument unfold between Monica and Anthony, Rex briefs
the two teenagers a hopeless history of Anthony, and his terminal
situation before commenting that the two mischievous teenagers should seek
their fun with the living rather than the seriousness grounds of death.
Monica screams at Anthony, claiming that she doesn’t care about the
location of the plot, nor Anthony’s death. Suddenly, she realizes that she
has hurt Anthony is hurt breaks down emotionally, taking her words back as
they comfort each other. Anthony decides to pick the spot they’re sitting
on as his plot. Rex offers the plot at $400, considering his connection to
Monica and the insisting of Josh and Katie. Rex and the greet Monica and
Anthony goodbye as they leave the cemetery.
Three months later, Katie and Josh continue their hobby of grave
decorating as they wait for Monica to arrive at Anthony’s grave.
