Synopsis

The Undertakers Club follows five students and the faculty advisor of their somewhat unusual club for future funeral directors. The students’ attitudes towards death range from the flippant to the professionally serious, but all are forced to face the issue personally when one of their members dies. The Undertakers Club is a cathartic vehicle that allows teenagers to imagine what the death of a friend at an early age would mean to them.
