AbstractHistoryArchive Description

''I am not saying I don't wish him peace but he should run through those pearly gates of heaven. If he walks, he'll get caught for something.'

'As a father's death approaches, three siblings struggle to reconcile with their differing experience of the same man. Conflicting memories, rusted on family habits and arguments about who will do what at the funeral all create distraction from the painful truth. Parental love isn't always fair. And keeping score on family history is a dangerous game.'
