An estranged mother and a now sober daughter meet at the viewing of their deceased husband/father - the man who became the wedge in their relationship. The daughter, after years of therapy, rehab, and 12 Step Groups, finally is sober and has the courage to confront her mother with the abandonment and pain she experienced growing up. She is met by her mother's staunch denial and vicious verbal attacks. Pushing the issue only brings out more the family's dark secrets. In a story that reveals the despair, desperation and suicidal feelings that abuse inflicts on its victims, will confrontation break through their barriers? Will communication be enough to begin their healing? A brave film that deals with taboo subjects in a direct and dramatically effective way. Written by
