Submitted: September 09, 2010

Thomas is killed in a freak accident - walking home from the ice-cream parlor with his girl, Katherine, he's carried out of her hands by a speeding truck and crushed against an old banyan tree on Bird Road. Now, Katherine will rush through the funeral arrangements, cremating him, sending his childhood friends on a fictional journey into Everglades National Park to dispose of his ashes, and ultimately she will find happiness by erasing every trace of Thomas from her life.



Five of Thomas’s childhood friends - Sergio, Vince, Gule, Alex and Tony - take turns telling the story of the funerary procession, but they are each blinded by their own issues, naivety, obsessions, fears, and they struggle to see Katherine's true motives.
