Now Netflix is ​​reproposing it on its social profiles by adding an extra element, essential for understanding the character of Death in all its humanity.


“Their attitude towards your gift is so strange – Sandman says to his sister – why do they fear the sunless lands? Dying is as natural as being born.” Death’s explanation is astounding for its delicacy and depth, it is the story of an encounter, a question, a doubt and a choice. That of trying, once every 100 years, to put yourself in the shoes of others, men and women, of those who have lived and are about to leave. For just one day, the short space of 24 hours, still enough to attach yourself to life so much that you don’t want to leave it anymore. “At the end of my very first day alive, when I met myself, I turned to myself and told myself I was a cold, conceited bitch. And I didn’t say it even remotely so nice.”
