THE FUNERAL DANCER tells the story of Jazz, who works as a funeral entertainer, a profession which has become one of the best paid jobs in a world where funerals are a status symbol and at the same time an obligation to entertain relatives, friends and work colleagues alike. Expectations are high, morals are low. While Jazz tries to entertain the mourners, she is forced to face severe problems of her own.
