Synopsis: When things get tough for offbeat Carys Reitman, she does what any emotionally isolated, modern girl would do - she goes to strangers' funerals. At one fateful funeral, she unexpectedly meets Tyler, a man mourning his fiancée. Despite the warnings of her undertaker best friend Shane and her roommate Lila, she finds herself connecting to someone for the first time. Searching for answers, Carys goes to see her estranged mother to confront her past. And as she tries to open herself to the risks of love with Tyler, she realizes she may have more to fear than just a broken heart.

was the happiest day of my life,

until the next day...

...and the day after that.

[Clears throat]

I guess I should tell you

who Anna really was.

Anna was the goofiest girl

I ever met in my life.

The very first time I ever met her,

she walked up to me in the hall of our

dorm and kissed me on the mouth.

She was a lot of things.

She was a... she was a pink-haired

cheerleader in high school,

the karaoke bully in college,

an Internet whiz kid who couldn't

calculate a tip to save her life.

She was bold and unafraid,

always the first one

out on the dance floor at a party,

using her bad French

wherever she went in Paris,

and loving the people

in her life with great abandon.

I know that a day won't pass for me

without picturing her lopsided smile.


And the world's a lesser place

for having lost her.

[Organ plays softly]

[Indistinct conversations]


Oh, no.

Good of you to come.

I, uh, um...

I... I liked what you said.

I don't think

I've ever met you before.

I thought I knew

all of Anna's friends.

No, we haven't met.

- Um, I'm Carys.

- Hi.

- What was that?

- I don't know.

Did something fall?

No, I don't think so.

I thought I saw something.

Will you...

will you help me look for it?

I don't see anything.

I could have sworn.

So, you must be

a friend of the family.

Uh, yes, exactly,

a friend of the family's,

good friend of the family's...

known them for years.

You must have heard

a lot of shit about me, then.

Mm, no. No, I didn't.



Here come Anna's parents now.


Uh, who are...

Ah, it's okay. It's okay.

Shh, you're okay.

It's okay. Shh.

Tyler, could you give us

a moment, please?

Of course.

Hey, okay. It's okay.

Hey, hey, hey.

Carys, you okay?

I can't... go.
