Sitting at the head of the table, "death cafe" facilitator Mireille Hayden listens carefully as a young woman who recently lost her father shares her experience dealing with grief. At this unusual cafe in London, people from all ages and all walks of life meet to sip a cup of tea and eat cake, while telling stories of grief, loss and bereavement, and discussing the great beyond and the finality of death. No topic is off limits and the objective is clear: breaking the "taboo" of death and encouraging people to "make the most of their finite lives".
