Join us for a virtual livestream Q&A on Sunday, September 27 at 7:00PM CST with Paul Riccio (Co-writer/Director), Jamie Effros (Co-writer/Actor) and Louis Cancelmi (Actor). Filmmaker Q&A conducted by journalist Jerry Nunn (Windy City Times, The Edge, and more).

When Kenneth, a man with complex layers of personality and paths in life, suddenly dies, his son and boyfriend, who are practically strangers, are left living in the same house. Martin, the son, and Ted, the boyfriend, have to navigate their way around one another while they both get a grip on the truths and memories of their passed loved one. With comedy and realness at the forefront of the film, the story of Martin and Ted explores love, loss, connection and acceptance. In the end, we learn that there’s a comfort to the complexities we allow each other, that love can always surprise us, and that a person is far more than the stories we tell about them.
