A group of rebellious, creative Kiwi seniors give death the finger, one crazy coffin at a time.
Musical and documentary unite to introduce The Coffin Club, a truly unique community organisation bringing free-spirited seniors together to construct and personalise their own low-cost coffins. Based in small town New Zealand, with over 60 active members, this group of inspirational elderly meet once a week to rejoice in life while facing the realities of death.
This warm and humorous story enters a lively community of seniors who live life as if each breath was their last.
