Pushing Up Daisies

Montana Premiere

Pushing Up Daisies delves into the world of American funeral directors, revealing the rarely witnessed behind-the-scenes action of the death care industry. It takes an intimate look into the daily lives of two very different funeral directors: Ronald L. Jones, a flamboyant, philosophical man in urban St. Louis, lured into the business by the big cars, fancy suits and rumors of riches; and Peter Burla, an austere, down-to-earth man in Ironwood, Michigan, who views his one-man operation as a chance to earn a modest, respectable living. Examining the lives and work of these professionals gives an insight into the heart of our culture.
