In this scene from the movie, Elliot (Joey Clarke) broods next to his deceased wife Emily's urn. More scenes below.

Elliot ... about my cremation ... I want you to do one thing for me when it’s over ...” Emily’s last wish of her husband (Elliot) … that he divide her ashes between himself and her best friend (Jessica) … goes unfulfilled, as Elliot is unwilling to share his wife, even in death. The plot revolves around the widower as he develops an attachment to his wife’s urn. As events unfold and secret aspects of Emily’s life are brought to light through the pages of her diary, Elliot is driven to do the unthinkable.

Congratulations Elspeth, I was not aware that you had made a movie!!! I'm sooooooo impressed. How was that experience? How long did it take you to complete? I haven't seen it but what does it feel like to sit and watch a movie that you have created? Was it difficult to direct the actors?? Are you planning to continue? Just wonderful!
