November 16 – December 10, 2017
Almost forty years after Ernie walked out on the family, his son George is contacted to help the old man cope with the aftermath of a stroke. As Ernie struggles to regain language and memory, George works to overcome his hurt and resentment, caring for a father he never knew. Each man tries to make sense of the past while preparing for their uncertain, newly-entwined future – a moving parable of prodigal fathers.
