A lot of discussion around death focuses on what happens to our spirits and is there a life after death, Roach takes a somewhat different approach and discusses the possibilities available to one’s body after death. Roach’s narration provides for both an informational and amusing take on what our bodies can do for this world after we leave them. — Misha D'Andrea
