Plot Synopsis

Ellie and Gwen Goode are sisters who inherit a funeral home from their grandfather in a small New Zealand town. Unsure what to do with the funeral home -- or the oddball staff that keep the place running -- Ellie and Gwen are thrust into a world of embalming, emceeing, and embarrassment. Recently fired from her teaching career, Ellie starts to warm to the job, but all Gwen wants to do is go DJ in Bali. By staring death in the face every day, Ellie and Gwen begin to confront the realities of their own life, and what they want to make of it. It turns out that helping families cope with loss can be a heartwarming -- and sometimes hilarious -- opportunity.
