Storyline

A man enters a long-term care facility on Christmas Eve armed with a syringe and a camera. He's there to see his elderly father who is autistic and has been paralyzed for 20 years following a car accident, confined now to a hospital bed. His intention is to put the man on trial: he blames his father for his difficult childhood, of not being there for him, and for ruining his dead mother's life. He's come to put an end to the miserable old man and to film it all. But first, over the course of 24 hours, he is made to suffer through physical and psychological torture. The only reprieve the frail and deteriorated old man gets from his sadistic and cruel son is when the hospital staff interrupt to feed and wash him, and change his diapers. Ironically, this is far worse than his son's torture as he has to deal with the daily pain, humiliation, and loss of dignity of having to depend on others to take care of his basic bodily functions. Vulnerable and helpless, he has no choice but to endure. Written by pr1mal_1

Disturbing...
11 September 2006 | by ed_gein7See all my reviews

Robert Morin proves once against is talent for the no-budget movies... What was a personal liberation soon became another piece of art for the director. In fact, this movie wasn't supposed to be shown in public, due to his disturbing and chocking content, but mostly because of it's personal Mather. At the beginning, Morin was looking for revenge against his handicap father, who ruined his mother's life. After his mother's death, Morin had to take care of his father, who he hated since he was a kid. Physical and mental torture are the weapons that Morin uses against his unarmed father on the Christmas eve night. The personal stuff that Morin reveals to the camera is simply astonishing. After this experience, Morin was able to forgive his father and establish a truth between them. Altought this film is extremely provocative, I think it's a must see for everyone who had ever felt rage against is father or against a handicap person...
