The Film in Brief: REMEMBERING NIGEL
A group of people get together to remember a man they once knew named Nigel. Unfortunately everyone’s opinion of this man is so vastly different you soon realize nobody knew him at all. In a series of flashback scenes, some funny, some sad, we piece together a man's journey to find the humanity in himself - and in those who loved and despised him.
A funny, sad and finally triumphant life that makes us realize that there’s a little Nigel in us all....Some people can never be forgotten, no matter how hard you try.
