Hate Hollywood? Here's your movie! Molly Parker stars as a wisp of a girl fascinated with death from a young age, so much so that she takes a job in a funeral home and soon starts banging the corpses. Her boyfriend (who knows about this little pecadillo) wants to take a stab at it himself.

Based on the novel We So Seldom Look on Love.
