Storyline

Richard views himself as a typical Southerner - works hard, hunts, and loves his wife Claire. However, when he discovers Claire with another man, Richard is surprised to find that he is intrigued, rather than angered, about the affair. This discovery forces Richard to reckon with who he is and what he is feeling. Alongside the twisted and misdirected ways he sates his physical needs, Richard revisits unresolved memories of his father John's obsessive desire to "see the face of God." While Richard struggles to go beyond the physical, John struggles to accept it, seeking instead a spiritual high. Richard has to face the hard question: can we ever be truly satisfied? He does so at the risk of finding that his desires could end in tragedy, and yet with the allure that perhaps there is still something greater than life lived at the surface. Written by Graham Pritz-Bennett
