Our Father

Our Father

Beta (Baize Buzan) and Zelda (Allison Torem) don't have much in common, but after their father's suicide, the one thing holding them together is a shared desire to find their uncle Jerry (Austin Pendleton), a "religious nut" who vanished thirty years ago.

A comedic odyssey in an intimate package, OUR FATHER is an occasionally mournful look at how, in our desire to be taken care of, we sometimes forget to take care of each other.
