Project Details

Short Synopsis:  When the patriarch of their family dies, Issac and his mom Theresa take a trip to their old family cottage to scatter the ashes of her late husband Nick. This trip takes place a decade after the family had a falling out over Issac’s sexuality. The weekend brings up reminders of the tension that exists in the family, and Issac expresses his anger at his mom for choosing to side with his father over him. Theresa reveals that she was the one who chose to stay away, not Issac's father. Issac is left with making the choice to forgive his mother or leave her out of his life for good. After some reconciliation, the two make amends and rediscover their sense of family before the weekend's end.
