A dark comedy about a family broken apart by betrayal. Ana is a Korean American who travels to Seoul in 1975 to retrieve her dead father's ashes. Luke is a young American soldier fighting in the jungles of Myanmar in 1944. Number Four is the name of a Korean comfort woman camping out on a bridge in Seoul in 1950, waiting for the return of the young American soldier who fathered her daughter. Three separate time periods collide in a small hotel room in Korea, mediated by a shape-shifting Jesus who first shows up as a bellboy. AMONG THE DEAD is about a family finding each other through SPAM, journals and Jesus. Mostly Jesus.
