For nearly twenty years, a small group of women in Brighton (UK) have been changing the way people look after their dead: supporting them during the ritual of care after death, and empowering them to create personal ceremonies that reflect the life that the deceased lived.

With extraordinary access, this independent feature documentary witnesses three groups of people on their unknown journeys making very different decisions about the care of the deceased and creating what is important and bespoke for their ceremonies. This all-women-team are pioneers who challenge many of the accepted, traditional and often secretive ways of a multi-million pound industry. This relatively unknown work is part of an emerging movement that is changing how, as a society, we are dealing with the ritual of care of the dead and ceremonial ritesĀ in contemporary Britain.
