Film Info

A father and son face awkward intimacies when caregiving roles are reversed.

Avi, 45, returns home to India from California to care for his father. Unlike the warmth his father shares with his caregivers, the father and son’s relationship is prickly. One afternoon when the attendant is unavailable, Avi must deal with his father’s diarrhoea. A desperate Avi realises that he must let go of his own crap before he can clean his father’s shit.
