Elijah is just nine when he loses his iron working father in a skydiving plane crash. When his father is forever buried in the family cemetery, Elijah accepts the realization that one day—already marked—he too will die.
Through vivid memories of not just that fateful day but also his childhood, Elijah reflects about the time not only of his father’s untimely demise, but the rippling effect it had upon his paternal relatives, how their lives transformed everything in his own.
The Funeral Plain reveals the moving crescendo of a young man’s deeper journey into the truth of life; an homage to the ghosts of memory in the long book of life.
