Death is Everyday
Just another working day around death. Pekka Jokiranta is an undertaker who takes pride on his work. He feels death is something people don't want to face in their everyday life, even when it is a natural part of life. From the early days of his career he remembers how a young boy took off his hat when Jokiranta was driving by with his funeral car. Taking off the hat when funeral car drives by is a way of showing respect for the departed. That is something you learn from home. Nowadays not many people do that anymore.
