Set against the stunning backdrop of the industrial seaside town of Port Kembla, a feisty and resilient community group are determined to take back the responsibility that most of us leave to someone else – to care for their own dead. Scattered throughout are stories that cut to the core, revealing why this small community have decided to take on a practice that is – for most – taboo. As their plans for community-based funerals gather momentum one of their own is diagnosed with a life-threatening illness. TENDER is a heart-breakingly beautiful yet beautifully funny glimpse of an extraordinary community taking on one of the most essential challenges of human life…its end.
