The Son is produced by Ciné @, Embankment Films, Film4 and See-Saw Films and is an exclusive for Italy Leone Film Group, soon to be distributed in Italian cinemas by 01 Distribution.
Two years after his parents’ divorce, 17-year-old Nicholas can no longer live with his mother. The pain of living that he feels has become a constant presence and his only refuge are the memories of the happy moments of when he was a child. The boy decides to move in with his father Peter, who has just had a child with his new partner. Peter tries to care for Nicholas thinking about how he would like his father to take care of him but in the meantime tries to juggle his new family and the prospect of an enticing political career in Washington. However, as he tries to make up for the mistakes of the past, he loses sight of Nicholas’ present.
The Son is a tale destined to resonate deeply in anyone who has had to fight for their family. What is the line between what is best for us and the responsibilities we have towards others and towards our children?
