A young man, Marcus, drives through the countryside to collect his grandfather on the morning of his father’s funeral service. What he discovers during the course of the ensuing car journey will change his view of his father, and grandfather, forever.

Skeletons studies the ways that family secrets can fester and cause untold damage to later generations when things unsaid eventually come to light.
