From the film’s Short of the Week page:

A young man is paid an unexpected visit on the morning of his mother’s funeral.

Sometimes, the most random interaction can slowly reveal itself as a deeply emotional event. One that can make you question what you believed to be true and even bring a sense of closure. For Daryl, the main character in today’s short Manicure, he is staying home, ignoring calls and trying to avoid going to his mother’s funeral, when he meets a woman who needs to use his phone. Could this innocuous interaction lead to greater implications? With Manicure, writer/director/editor Stephanie Ahn uses minimalist production and a simple premise to craft a moving and complex story of grief which subverts audience expectations.
