If you discovered the key to eternal life, would you use it? No matter what the key may turn out to be, would you just go for it?
That’s one of the questions posed by A Song For The Living, or Dead Love as it’s also known. Brandon, Grayson Low (“The Kiss (Short)”, “Seed (Short)”), is in a funeral home to arrange his mother’s funeral after her recent passing by hanging herself.
The owners of the funeral, Caterina, Kate Linder (“Mother’s Day”, “The Young And The Restless (TV)”), Lassiter, Bob Buckley, and the beautiful Fiona, Nicole Elizabeth Olsen, are warm and friendly, helping him in his time of need.
Together, the ladies invite Brandon around for dinner and when Fiona sings a beautiful song about eternal life and Lassiter serves a sumptuous looking steak, Brandon ends up with far more than he could have possibly bargained for.
I’d like to go into more detail about the story but it’s tricky without giving too much away, and no-one wants to read a bunch of spoilers do they?
There’s also the issue that A Song For The Living (aka Dead Love) is a real head-scratcher. It takes so long for the big reveal to be revealed that everything up to that moment is a bit fuzzy and slow as you’ve no idea why anyone’s behaving the way they are, which is oddly.
Caterina and Fiona talk amongst themselves about Brandon being ‘the one’ and Fiona loving him, but there are hints that there’s more too it than that, certainly more for Brandon anyway.
Lassiter meanwhile goes around like a bear with a sore head as he feels left out of whatever it is that’s occurring. It also doesn’t help that he’s in love with Fiona, despite being seemingly double her age, and married to her sister…
