Stone-Life is a drama-comedy about a Norwegian mother and father in the desert for the first time, trying to convince their 40 years old daughter, that runs an alternative stone retreat, to step back from her legal right to take over the traditional family farm in Norway. When the father suddenly dies, the mother and daughter are forced to collaborate on planning the funeral in the desert. This turns out to be a disaster.
