The Peculiar Grief of the Adult Orphan
Short Film in development.
Scarlet is 21 and has just lost her mother - her last living relative. Brokenhearted and bewildered with three cats and a funeral to organise, Scarlet has to juggle the awkwardness of young adulthood with the bureaucratic absurdity of death. In this love letter to the Matriarchy, Scarlet will learn that living in London may be expensive, but dying in London is extortionate.
The Peculiar Grief of the Adult Orphan is a comedy about grief, in which a young woman loses her mother, and finds herself.
