The Procession

 

Year: 2011
Country: USA
Run Time: 13 minutes

Julie tearfully asks her brother, Jason, and their Mom to attend the funeral of afriend. Mom and Jason would rather not – they’d never even met the deceased woman. But they can’t say no. They do manage to negotiate with Julie, agreeing to go to the service, but not the burial. After the service, Mom and Jason,both famished, try to drive past the cars exiting the church and get stuck in the funeral procession. Mom and Jason realize they have to drive all the way to the cemetery, so as not to break up the procession. Once they get everyone there, Mom and Jason will go on their way without ever stepping foot out oftheir car. It’s a plan. What isn’t the plan is where Mom and Jason forget they’re in the procession, desperately try to find the cars they werefollowing, and now blindly lead the rest of the procession.
