This feature documentary is a portrait of Dale Menzak, an auctioneer specializing in the sale of family farms who also works part-time as an undertaker. Set against a backdrop of gorgeous prairie vistas, The Auctioneer observes Menzak from a respectful distance as he facilitates the difficult process of letting go.
