AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Accidents Happen is a wickedly funny and surprisingly moving fable of family, fate and misfortune in American suburbia. The manicured lawns of 1980's New England imply an order that simply doesn't exist for the Conway family, headed by razor-tongued Gloria. Youngest son Billy has been a witness to a series of tragic accidents, including one that fractured his whole family. Always the good boy, Billy takes up with the neighbourhood troublemaker in acts of delicious delinquency in a world already spinning out of control. The ensuing collision of guilt, truth and self discovery may be just what his family needs to move on.'

'There are dysfunctional families... and then there are the Conways. After a family tragedy, 15-year-old Billy Conway has become the de facto glue between his bitter mom, distant brother, and stoic dad. But when Billy starts to act out, everything changes for him and his family.'
Producer's synopsis, imdb.com
