    • Synopsis
    • A heartbreaking and provocative story set in the confines of small bathroom, as Jared’s world gets smaller and more controlled by a man he doesn’t know, his dementia stricken father, John. In the midst of the insanity, discarding, and cleansing, a brief moment of clarity offers John the portal to share his past terrors and anguish, and in so doing, gives Jared and the rest of the family a place to start healing from.

      Kate, Jared’s supportive yet assertive wife, gives him some reprieve by taking control of John’s bullying, while their son, Danny, adds a tender humility and shows strength beyond what anybody expects in a teen taking care of a monster.
