Sean struggles with his grief and drug addiction, living in the ruins of his parents' decaying bar in central Brooklyn. Unable to keep a ﬁrm grip on the present, he slips involuntarily in and out of his past, talking to his dead adoptive mother, Estelle, and straight-laced brother, Brian, who died on 9/11; even his drug dealer appears to him only has Harold, his dead father. Sean grapples with the guilt of the multiple betrayals of his brother, and especially by a phone call Brian tried to make on his last day that never came through. Enter Emily, Brian’s widow, who has always been caught between both brothers. She must ﬁght her instincts and get through to Sean, saving him before tragedy claims their whole family.
Yeah -- I have no idea either, Jim. (And I wrote the damn thing.) Pass the Guinness. [sb]
