Plagued by perpetual disconnect and haunted by familial secrecy, director David Quint records his desperate search for understanding. This extraordinary father-son journey is also a fascinating exploration of human kinship and personal revelation. Using his iPhone to capture the story as it unfolds, Quint faces the emptiness he carries inside, challenges his inability to connect to the people closest to him, and confronts his family’s shameful secrets. His pluck and candor keep the film moving forward, and ultimately deliver a completely unexpected climax.
