synopsis
Mourning Has Broken explores the thin line between tragedy and comedy, love and hate, life and death. When a husband wakes to find that his wife has unexpectedly died during the night, he bottles up his grief and takes an emotional battle-axe to everything in the world that angers him. Unable to cope with his devastation, he sets out to complete the final "to-do" list his wife left him-with hilarious, drastic consequences. During his errands, a series of mundane annoyances and pet peeves that confront him end up becoming part of his wild call-to-action.

director
Brett and Jason Butler have been prolific micro-budget filmmakers for the better part of a decade. With five feature films and two webseries during that time they have created a brand of comedy and drama that refuses to be categorized. The Butler Brothers have built a cult following that continually awaits their latest production and with Mourning Has Broken they have reached a new level of maturity, creative voice and artistic risk.

filmmaker's note
We have always found it fascinating to see what people are willing to deal with in day-to-day lives in order to retain a moral and ethical centre. But what if they didn't have to? With Mourning Has Broken we wanted to push the boundaries of what it means to grieve. We are expected to be sad, to be brave, to move forward. But more often than not it's not that easy, especially when you just want to be left alone and deal with things on your own terms. We wanted to take the audience on a journey that would make them laugh, make them sad and make them think.
