Bizarre and disturbing behavior erupts behind closed doors in this controversial drama based on the award-winning play by Stanley Bennett Clay (who also directs), about a young man desperately trying to save his family. Mason (Shawn Michael Howard) drops out of college and returns home to a virtual hell, where his mother drinks herself into a stupor while his father maintains a façade of perfection, and his sister has become a surrogate wife.
