Film Summary

Death is inevitable. And expensive. But it doesn’t have to be boring. In New Zealand, a group of rebellious retirees are shunning black garb, dull funerals and mahogany caskets by creating a club where they construct their own coffins. The whimsical boxes are painted with shamrocks, beach scenes, cartoon chickens and pictures of Elvis, and reflect the colorful lives of their makers. The Coffin Club is a glittery, musical number that celebrates how these seniors will make a splash on their final day.
