A delayed-coming-of-age drama about becoming one’s true self. Flashbacks chronicle the O’Brien family from the 1960s when they reign as Suffield’s ideal family, through the 1990s when elderly matriarch Ginnie lives in seclusion with her gay son, Mark.
They are visited periodically by Mark’s younger brother Dickie, now in his 30s, extremely successful and with a model family of his own.
Enter Ted, a handyman Ginnie hires “on the cheap” who befriends Mark and offers him the possibility of a new life. Mark must now choose between his dreamlike past and an unknown future.
