“Family’s Business” bursts open the front door to unveil the intimacy of a story hidden behind domestic walls.
“Family’s Business” tells of a mother and her disabled son. A relationship in search for balance: a bond that loosens and tightens, that cannot be dissolved but that wants to find a way to exist and to resist prejudice. With all the frailty that envelops their lives, the characters scream, in the surrounding silence, that their story is not just a family affair.
