Synopsis: It’s 1967, and deep in The Lake District, John, George and Ringo must convince a sheepish rural lookalike to join the band after Paul dies during their disastrous musical retreat. Hungover, and at each other’s throats, The Beatles must brave a perilous mountain hike to bury Paul at the summit, and face up to their inner conflicts if they are going to prevent their band falling apart. Paul is Dead is a comedy-drama short film, inspired by the archetypical bizarre rock and roll conspiracy theory.
