In a community recording studio, Jodie’s grieving friends are making a big song and dance about her death. They form a makeshift band to celebrate her life in musical form, but can’t agree on what kind of tribute Jodie would have wanted… or even who she really was. They dive into her surviving collection of diary entries, poems and secrets to make some sense of things, and to have some fun amongst the darkness of loss.  

Join the inimitable Sheep Soup and enter the hilarious and heartwarming world of The Leftovers, where genre boundaries are smashed, friendships are built and destroyed, and everyone tries to avoid writing Candle In The F***ing Wind…
