SYNOPSIS

Ronan Connolly is slowly enabling his oldest brother’s death.

 

As Kier’s lone caretaker, Ronan is fiercely loyal to the brother who raised him, sincerely means well, and doesn’t even recognize what he’s doing. All Ronan knows is that he’s using his hard-earned money to keep Kier sustained with the only things he’ll consume – booze, cigarettes, and pizza bagels – because his stubborn brother is unwilling (and increasingly unable) to venture out from their family’s tenement apartment in Chelsea, Massachusetts.

 

But with Kier hitting the bottle harder than ever, and Ronan desperately trying to ignore his brother’s onset of dementia, Ronan is forced to face reality when he catches Kier having a “conversation" with Fiona, the baby sister they gave up for adoption decades ago.

 

This sight compels Ronan to very reluctantly seek help from their estranged brother Mickey, an Episcopal priest in Los Angeles who left 15 years earlier and never looked back. Father Mickey returns home with a surprise guest on November 1st – coinciding with the Catholic All Saints’ Day feast holiday – intent on immediately getting Kier into rehab.

 

This impromptu family reunion leads to the resurfacing of all the old tensions and a botched intervention, leaving everyone questioning how far you can ever really stray from your home and family.
