On the day of her father’s funeral, a traumatised Poppy Green hides a horrible secret: The spectre of her father’s dead body haunts her every waking moment. A constant reminder that she let him die.

With the funeral fast approaching, Poppy tries to hide her guilty conscience from the mourners offering their condolences. But every lie she tells about her father’s death reanimates The Body...

…One limb at a time.

The further Poppy spirals into denial, the closer The Body gets to consuming her soul. Can Poppy free herself by telling the truth? But who can she trust to tell it to? And what will they do when they know?

Please note: This film contains very little dialogue - there is a greater emphasis on physicality and expression
