- Synopsis / Plot
- A folk tale and real-life legend about the mysterious, 1930s Tennessee hermit who famously threw his own rollicking funeral party... while he was still alive. A life-long “wild man” and misfit, Felix Bush has been nearly swallowed up by the power of his town’s sinister myths about him – until he finds the courage on his own “funeral day” to make a shocking confession about why he turned away from society. A tale about the snowballing nature of secrets, stories and heartbreak – and the redemption of telling the truth.
