Julie’s grandmother has died. In the middle of the night, the moon came and stole her away.

But Julie has a plan. Armed with a backpack full of perfume bottles and her beleaguered dog, Julie holds a nineteen-day vigil in the basement with her grandmother’s corpse. While she waits to meet death, Julie passes the time by remembering her grandmother’s stories about Pacamambo: the country where you become the people you love.

Me and my big dog, we decided we were gonna do something. Something incredible. We were going to meet Death. And we were gonna punch his face in.
