Death comes to us all, but without the cowl and scythe, he can be kinda hard to recognise. A heat wave pushes one artist to meet another; a cute teenage girl suggests dancing when things don't go your way, the shadows look back at you on a remote farm; the grim reaper is much more concerned with getting his hands on your vintage leather sofa than ushering you into the next world and a girl runs screaming through the woods pursued by a masked would-be assailant....
