Summary When world famous film director Don Tyler is tossed off the picture by his studio boss, his depression is only relieved by his unlikely friendship with a down-on-his-luck cameraman, YoYo. Knowing he's not well, Tyler asks his friend to plan a "comedy funeral" for him, where people leave feeling happy, as they do at Chinese funerals of the elderly. When Tyler eventually falls into a coma, YoYo begins the task of granting Tyler's last wish.
