Jury Award, Ann Arbor Film Festival

A man visits his parents and empties the contents of his mind through a series of absurd and serious vignettes.  The film explores the dynamics which form identity and self and at the same time help to deny them.  The therapeutic relationship is enacted metaphorically with the parents "on the couch" and the son as the therapist.  Some chilling moments are reached.
