FUBO lifts the veil of a seldom heard of, much less spoken about profession - that of mortuary assistants, (euphemistically referrred to as "Uncle Fu" whose job is to undertake handling, dissection and cleaning up of corpses on behalf of forensic scientists. It has threee narrative strands, about three agents of death, who never meet, yet affect each other's lives: a mortuary assistant, a triad assassin and a portugese chef who cooks for death row convicts. For a film that takes place chiefly in a morgue, it confounds genre expectations gleaned from horror-thrillers like Nightwatch. While offering a voyeuristic keyhole to peer into the most repulsive and morbid details of death, it contemplates the philosphical significance of life and Destiny.
