A provocative look at parenting today's American teen.
Gloria and Clay are living every parent's nightmare - their son has been suspended for bringing a gun to school. As they wrestle with their predicament, an unexpected visit from their son's girlfriend turns their backyard barbecue into a high-stakes game of cat and mouse.
“Lewis displays the complexities of American life...buffeted by the competing influences of “Romeo & Juliet,” pop-culture and (Johann) Strauss. Any parent who's experienced guilt and doubt will identify” – Rob Hurwitt, SF Chronicle
“A tense frightening thriller that dredges up provocative issues about life in 21st – century America…a taut fraught examination of guns, teens and detonation of the nuclear family.” – Chad Jones, SF Examiner
“A taut 75-minutes of intergenerational suspense.” - George Heymont, My Cultural Landscape
