Like father, like son
Based on a memoir, this film explores the bonds both unbreakable and fragile between parent and child. A young writer, seeking to define himself, misses his late mother and her loving nature. His father is not even a memory, as they have not seen each other for eighteen years. Dad thinks himself a great writer, but in reality is struggling financially, and a slave to the bottle. When he gets evicted from his apartment, he impulsively reaches out to his son, and the two come face-to-face for the first time in nearly two decades. Both men have their issues, but maybe they'll be able to help get each other back on track.
