A dramatic tour-de-force of a comedy about life and loss, identity, disconnection, self-deception, isolation… and love.
It’s the dead of Winter. The snow is falling heavily outside.
Shelagh Stephenson, her three sisters and their significant others gather in their childhood home in Yorkshire on the eve of their mother’s funeral.
They soon revert to their family roles and find themselves bickering over their differing memories of the same events. As they go through their mother’s things and discuss making the necessary arrangements, emotions are running high, revelations are uncovered and some of the old hurts and resentments rear their ugly heads (sometimes with the help of a little weed or whiskey).
Each of them are forced to confront their past and also possibly, their present.
