    • Synopsis
    • Seven year old Zachary has been at the foster home for as long as he can remember.
      The film begins as 7 yr old Zachary walks us through his daily routine. He shows us his room, the foster home, and talks us through, in a very adult way, the ins and outs of being a ‘man’. “Everyman,” he tells us, “must have one nice outfit”.
      Simultaneously, a story unravels with an older man, though at this stage we do not know who this man is. His daily routine does, indeed, seem to reflect young Zach’s daily routine. Could this be Zach as an adult? Or is it the man that will become Zach’s foster Dad? This older man is driving somewhere today, but where, we do not yet know.
      As the story unfolds, Zach’s foster parents, Patrick and Susan Macintyre, arrive at the home ready to take him away.
      The older man arrive at a cemetery and walks through the graves. He arrives at one gravestone, Patrick Macintyre, his adopted father.
      We cut back to the day Zach was adopted. Patrick pulls out a teddy bear and gives it to Zachary.
      Older Zachary, at the foot of the grave, places the old and worn teddy bear he was given all those years ago at the foot of the grave. He returns to his car where his wife and 7 year old child await his return.
