An upcoming exhibition celebrating photographer Isabelle Reed three years after her untimely death brings her eldest son, Jonah, back to the family house—forcing him to spend more time with his father, Gene; and withdrawn young brother, Conrad, than he has in years. With the three of them under the same roof, Gene tries desperately to connect with his two sons, but they struggle to reconcile their feelings about the woman they remember so differently. Using fluid, nonlinear storytelling, this empathetic and nuanced melodrama artfully depicts the tragedy of a family’s inability to connect. Discussion with actor Devin Druid
