At the margins of a city somewhere in the south of Europe, a young couple start their day with their job routine: collecting deceased pets from their owners in order to cremate them and return their ashes. In this endless life cycle, human beings and animals coexist harmoniously, until the couple causes a roadkill themselves. Set against a visually stunning and desolate landscape with an eerie sensuality, Kala azar is a film about death and life itself.
