Claire has been working around the clock to organise the perfect birthday party celebration for her father, Richard. Friends and family are gathered in Richard's home, toasting his milestone anniversary and ready to enjoy the cake. 

 

As the party continues a young man lets himself in through the front door. Leaving a travel bag in the hallway he walks towards the sounds of the celebration. He opens the door to the front room and steps confidently into the party. All eyes turn to him.

 

This is Will, Richard's eldest child.

 

Will has been away from home for a long time. He hasn't kept in touch. But he's back now. 

And he wants something.

After years away, Will finally confronts Richard and makes his demand.

 

Taking themes from the well-known story of the prodigal son our film observes the nuances and complexities of relationships, the fracturing of a family and the journey of a lost, angry and broken young man.
