Overview

Part of the 

strand.

Two migrant workers find themselves thrown together in a quest to bury a body in this hypnotic and visually stunning drama.

A fight over stolen property and a tragic death brings together two very different men for a hypnotic and moving odyssey across the Yorkshire landscape in search of a suitable burial place.

Beautifully directed and performed and shot in stark black and white with a vivid sense of visual splendour, this humane and moving film packs quite the emotional punch.
