Liverpool. The 40s. 'Distant Voices' takes us to the bosom of a working class family. At home they do not go through a good time. The father of the family has died and everyone is gathered in front of his coffin. Given the situation, his wife and children will begin to remember many of the memories of the life of the deceased: his anecdotes, painful issues, happy episodes or harsh situations, all remembered through songs and sonnets played by the family. The director Terence Davis ('Sunset Song', 'The Deep Blue Sea', ...) directs this film where he recreated and reflected on stage much of the memories of his life and childhood. Freda Dowie, Pete Postlethwaite, Angela Walsh, Dean Williams, Lorraine Ashbourne and Drew Schofield starring in this film.
