drama - family relations
four male; three female; one girl
"A once visceral father lies on his deathbed, looking over his life, youth, loves, lusts and the betrayals of his wife. At the same time, in another room, the man's two sons intellectually, clinically, and conspiratorally speak of their relationship with their father. Side-stepping their estrangement from him, they rationalize their love-hate relationship with him and defend the distance they are incapable of closing, even when their mother calls them home. In contrast to the closed sons is the man's daughter, the baby sister, who refuses the dourness, and bridges the space between the light and dark, youth and age, and death and life."
