This is an adult-only, gothic black comedy. Martin McDonagh's blood-splattered script, part thriller, part farce, is set mostly in an Irish village graveyard, where Mick disinters human remains every autumn to make way for new arrivals. To help him, he has the local tearaway Mairtin and village gossip Maryjohnny occasionally drops by on the way home from bingo. Local cop Thomas is stupid but not adverse to a little evidence manipulation if it helps him win promotion. As Mick gets to the grave of his wife - killed in a car crash - rumours abound and there is much skulduggery and blood before the living and the dead can rest easy.
