THE STORY: Deeply estranged brothers Gene and Ronnie are forced together to make arrangements for their sister, a homeless drug addict dying of AIDS. At first glance, the two men appear to be polar opposites. But as their sister's tragedy forces open old wounds, we see that they are very much alike, united forever by a dark, tragic past.
"Profound and intelligent tragicomedy that exposes one family's dysfunction from the varying recollections of two brothers." —Illinois News-Gazette.
