Synopsis
In a Scottish beach community filled with colorful locals, Frances, a newly widowed photographer, is toying with the idea of moving to Australia with her teenage son, Alex. Her mother aggressively forces her to choose between her loyalty to the living and the memory of the dead. While they argue, Alex is awkwardly approaching his first sexual experience with a young local girl while two old ladies are introduced as professional mourners who attend every funeral in town. The stories layer upon one another and address themes of life and death, age and youth.
