The Meeting

Whom do you find living in a tree-lined suburban street? A suburban family of five, as Craig and Sheryl apathetically deal with the death of their love. Their three children, David, Michelle, and Rick relentlessly struggle with denial, contempt, and rebellion. The sibling rivalry abounds with our protagonist David, openly discussing his sexuality within the realms of his family home. Whilst his father is never home to behold a view on leadership and with his mother abstaining from the truth, David struggles to hold his own place in the world. His circle of friends comforts him; however, his longing for acceptance from his family remains poignant.
