Gravehopping is a film about people from a small town in the Slovenian karst region.It focuses on the basic force in human existence - fear. Out of fear from death steams the desire for security, warmth and love.
Pero, the protagonist of the film, is an inteligent man in his mid-thirties. He uses his considerable talent as a writer for funeral speeches. These are not mere eulogues for the deceased, since Pero consciusly and unconsciously entwins his own perception of course of events and his life philosophy into them. He lives in a family house with his sisters Vilma and Ida, his father and his nephew Johnny. Pero's neighbour Shooki, Džoni's father Jagger and Renata, Pero's great love also frequently cross his path.
