About
Spick And Span
Armed with a bucket of cleaning utensils and a pragmatic approach to life, Jane, the hero of this dark comedy, attempts to scrub away the blood and guilt that’s left behind from a grisly suicide. Unfortunately, the girlfriend of the deceased is a much tougher job than the bathroom walls. Spick and Span is a funny, stark, and sometimes gruesome look at how individuals cope with death in a society that likes to sweep things under the rug.
