Jeremy. Just. DIED. So, in the event of his death, he leaves behind a series of clever clues and witty video messages for his best friend and bandmate Sam, and his brash sister Mandy, which sends them on an adventure through their shared past. They get to experience one last day with Jeremy after he's gone, and in the end are compelled to mourn the best way they know how.

We will all encounter the death of someone close. This original and creative story with high production value and great music brings a lightness to a dark subject that could help us “laugh through the tears “. A love for independent film and indie music is evident in Brian Steele’s dramedy showcasing a deep commitment to friendship, and that connection is the only way to be deeply human.
