A father in financial straits must pay a visit to his trenchant mother, but his troublemaking son puts his parenting abilities into question. He is left with the dilemma: to strike his son and earn his mother's respect or maintain his son's love but let his family down.
The 15 minute film is told in real time - from the arrival to the house to the final decision without any jumps in time. It is an in-your-face, family drama, driven by strong characters and true to life hardship.
At the heart of who I am is a storyteller. I believe that so many films get caught up in gimmicks and cliches, leaving them lacking a solid story foundation. A great film begins and ends with a great story.
Born and raised in Durham North Carolina, I come from a loud, vivacious, southern family who taught me the importance of family values and respect. Most of my scripts follow this theme and focus on the idea that we will inevitably inherit traits, good and bad, from our parents. I am fascinated by these binding characteristics that connect us to our ancestors and the possibilities of breaking the chain.
This project has become my greatest passion and I have fallen in love with the story and the characters. It is my promise to you to follow the life of this production through to the end and deliver an amazing film to all those who support me and this story.
