Bedynska explores the traditions surrounding dying and the way in which they prepare one for death. In Poland, there a tradition in preparing clothes for death. Clothes are selected carefully, with much thought and meaning. This particular tradition is still cultivated in little towns and villages, mostly among the older generation. Probably the last one.
