In old world Brittany, Mael Le Calvès lives in despair after the loss of his lover Donan to consumption. Mael contracts the disease as well, and one cold night, has a near death experience. On the other side, he discovers Donan is the parish Ankou, the Bretton death servant collecting the dying in a spectral cart. Mael is revived, but after seeing his lover, is determined to reunite with him.
Mael attempts suicide repeatedly, but is saved by well-meaning people. Fearing he will never see his lover again, he stumbles from his home on New Year’s Eve night in the hopes his grief, if not his death, will allow him to see Donan one last time.
