    • Synopsis
    • Dan is dead. He was only 29. Alex and Seph loved him like a sibling. And now he’s left them his ashes to scatter across the UK, along with elaborate video instructions for doing so. London, Stonehenge, Cardiff, York, Ben Lomond: road trip ! 
      BURN BURN BURN is a dark comedy with a warmth at its heart. Alex and Seph are in the eye of a storm, with decisions to make in every corner of their lives; and the one helping them make those decisions… is dead. It’s just like Jack Kerouac’s ‘On The Road’. In a Volvo. With a dead friend's ashes in some tupperware in the glove compartment.
