The Undertaking of Lily ChenBook - 2014
Deshi accidentally kills his older brother, Wei, by shoving him in front of a moving jeep, and his furious mother, calling on the ancient tradition of ghost marriage, demands that he find the unmarried Wei a corpse bride, a recently deceased single woman who will accompany him in the afterlife. Guilt-ridden Deshi seeks the help of a matchmaker, a grave robber, and a hospital attendant before he runs into stubborn, spirited Lily, who would make a perfect bride if she weren't so alive. Is Deshi prepared to commit murder to fulfill his mother's request? Or will he find a way to give his parents some peace while preserving his own happiness?
