In this reworking of Ibsen’s play The Wild Duck, an estranged son returns to his family home after a long period away in order to attend his wealthy father’s wedding. Finding his father aloof, and the town economically disenfranchised with its vital timber industry under severe strain, he is nevertheless pleased to be reunited with an old friend, his wife and their teenage daughter. He also discovers a long-buried family secret and sets about trying to make things right. However, his actions threaten to have unintentionally devastating consequences for the community. Dealing with delicate, often traumatic issues with sensitivity, this is a raw, powerful film of great beauty and insight into the human condition.
