The Son LFF Premiere Interviews


A couple of years after his parent’s divorce, 17-year-old Nicholas no longer feels he can stay with his mother, Kate. He moves in with his father Peter and Peter’s new partner Beth.

Juggling work, his and Beth’s new baby, and the offer of his dream job in Washington, Peter tries to care for Nicholas as he wishes his own father had cared for him.

But by reaching for the past to correct its mistakes, he loses sight of how to hold onto Nicholas in the present.
