During the course of planning the funeral secrets are revealed about Felix and he forced to face up to his painful past, and perhaps the reason for his living funeral.

 

Get low is a certain kind of film. It’s a drama with an indie feel that has a brilliant cast of actors and has been  superbly executed by Director Aaron Schneider.
