Death is a fact of life--it happens to the best of us. It also brings out the worst in some people. Sometimes, death shrouds itself in absurdity no matter how reverential one wants to be about it. Based on a true story, "Putting May to Rest" is the height of absurdity, a satiric look at one family's funeral. No matter how dysfunctional, this story's guaranteed to make even your family seem normal.
