A Tale of Legacy, Brotherhood & Love
A pair of siblings make a late-night drop-off at a funeral home to deliver their grandfather's Mason ring for him to be buried in the next day.
But unexpected events lead to an impromptu goodbye with the deceased.
It’s a late summer night in South Los Angeles, and teenage brothers EARL and ANTOINE are making a rather unusual late night drop. On the eve of their GRANDFATHER’s funeral, they’re tasked with delivering his MASON RING to the funeral home in a last-ditch effort to get it on his finger before the service the following morning.
Their beloved GRANDMOTHER has bestowed them with this mission; one that feels almost sacred. But the boys don’t quite see it that way. While they do want to make their grandmother happy, and know full well that returning home without seeing the mission through is not an option, more front of mind for them is who will inherit grandfather’s sleek Cadillac.
All they really want to prove is that grandsons who fulfill dying wishes should certainly be rewarded with V8 engines and chrome finish. But how badly do they want this?? Upon arriving at the funeral home they learn that their point of contact MR.BRICKER has stepped out to deal with an emergency. Or so it seems. Instead they’re met by NATHANIEL, a mysterious night security guard who isn’t at all impressed by their style or motives.
That is, unless they can prove to him why this Mason ring is so important in the first place, testing their knowledge of what was truly important to their grandfather and who they are as the keepers of his legacy. But also, perhaps inadvertently or by design, the encounter provides an opportunity for the boys to attain a greater understanding of a man whom they viewed as being just as mysterious as he was cold and stern.
