A gay man named Sweet William (Leavins) returns to his provincial hometown in Nova Scotia to confront a troubled childhood. He arrives in the midst of his sister Rosemary's (Fox) hectic wedding to find his grandmother (Orenstein) ill and crazy, his father (McNeill) drunk and violent and his mother (McKenna) on the verge of a nervous breakdown. A dark story of family dysfunction, this directorial debut from Canadian Fitzgerald also manages lots of humor and touches of magical realism.
