Three brothers. One in a coffin. Which brother put him there? And why?

Three brothers are at the funeral. One lies in the coffin.

Will, Brian and Luke grow up competing for their mother's love, but she is unable and unwilling to love all of them.

As adults, the competition continues. One brother always has what another one wants - status, money, success, a woman, the love of a child, his mother's attention.

But maybe there's a chance to even things up. Perhaps with one brother gone there would be more to go around.

Which will it be?
