Description:

A family goes on a quest to bury their family member. Yeah, sounds simple...except it never is. ‘Cause mom’s dead, and people have issues which are seen from 15 different perspective and, oh look a bird, yeah issues and it’s really difficult to understand because stream of consciousness, wait, did that cat just eat the bird? Did you get that? No, maybe, yes? Well that’s William Faulkner for you, keeping it confusing since 1930.
