When a newborn baby dies after a routine hospital procedure, there is no doubt about who will be held responsible: the nurse who had been banned from looking after him by his father. What the nurse, her lawyer and the father of the child cannot know is how this death will irrevocably change all of their lives, in ways both expected and not. This is about prejudice and power; it is about that which divides and unites us. It is about opening your eyes.

Stiff is an oddly compelling, often hilarious exploration of the strange lives of our bodies postmortem.
