When Helen discovers her mother’s ashes unceremoniously dumped in a biscuit tin, she takes it upon herself to give them a proper burial.

Picking up her teenage daughter, Issy, from school, she drives to the cemetery where her beloved father is resting in peace. Waking up on the backseat, Issy follows her mother to the gravesite to find her knees deep in mud desperately digging a hole to bury the tin.

A simple story of love, loss, and letting go After Eights looks at three generations of women and the impact they had on each other’s lives.
