Anne and Rosemary both chose to bury their husbands in the woods, whereas Tony was certain he didn’t want a vicar at his wife’s funeral. Focusing on the experiences of three grieving widows, the film explores how, in the absence of strong religious faith in modern Britain, people are looking to ideas of nature and regeneration to cope with grief and loss.
