After the funeral service for Mrs Virginia Cromwell, their sons Michael and Chad discuss their mother’s Final Will and Testament. The mourners have left, their kind thoughts exchanged. The sandwiches and tea have been served. It’s no secret to the boys their late mother’s Final Will and Testament has been divided equally. Chad makes his announcement to contest the Will for his lions share; Michael defends his ground.

 

Chad’s wife, Raelene makes her true feelings known about Michael to both of them, which only aggravates the underflow of smouldering years of unspoken hatred between the three of them. The little church on the hill where the funeral service for Mrs Virginia Cromwell was held prepares for another funeral service to be held at five.
