An elegant, elegiac film on Thomas Lynch, whose family-run funeral parlour business provided Oscar winning writer Alan Ball with the key to writing the hit HBO series ‘Six Feet Under’. Three generations of Lynchs work in the chain of Michigan funeral homes set up by Lynch’s father. But what marks Thomas out from the rest of the brood is that he is also a renowned poet and essayist whose work has won the prestigious American Book Award and has been in the final shortlist for the National Book Award one of the most eminent literary prizes in the United States.
Poet and undertaker, Thomas Lynch, gives his overview of life and the state of ceasing to be.
