Summary
What kind of man buys his grave at the age of eighteen and chooses to spend the rest of his life in a rest home at thirty-five? Antoine is an odd young man who somewhat prematurely acquiesces to his terminal destiny. The ultimate fatalist, Antoine decides to play hooky from life by retiring to the Happy Days Retirement Home. Despite the pronounced difference in age, the residents accept him, and he quickly settles into a routine as the life of the party, the sex toy of the nurses, and the best friend of an Alzheimer's patient called Al. It's a carefree life, until the arrival of a dying woman with whom Antione forms a close bond and goes on a very special journey
