SummaryAdd a Summary
Life for the unassuming John May (played by Eddie Marsan) has always revolved around his work, for the local council in South London, finding the next-of-kin of those who have died alone. Profoundly dedicated to his work, he believes that everyone deserves a dignified funeral, and writes eulogies and organizes burials or cremations for those who wouldn't have them otherwise. But when a new case - an elderly alcoholic in a flat directly opposite his own - hits May harder than usual, he journeys outside London to track down the man's long abandoned [wife and] daughter. Against the odds, the two lonely souls are drawn to each other - and May's outlook starts to open to life's possibilities. 93 min., colour [from the DVD jacket]
