A fleeting reunion between an estranged father and his son, raggedly and impolitely thrown together at a hotel looking out on Sydney International Airport. Dad - a struggling entrepreneur - is rerouted from Papua New Guinea to Wellington via Sydney, and while there he reckons he's "got to see" his boy. And so they come together for a few stolen moments - acutely aware that their reunion will end as soon as it's begun. They go through their rituals, make small talk, listen and don't hear, miss each other and occasionally connect. Written by
Julian Shaw, Sydney, 2009
