Based on the award bestselling book by Blake Morrison, this film is "an unflinching exploration of a father/son relationship, as Blake Morrison deals with his father Arthur's terminal illness and imminent death. Blake's memories of everything funny, embarrassing and upsetting about his childhood and teens are interspersed with the present as he struggles to come to terms with his father, and the history of conflict, and learns to accept that one's parents are not always accountable to their children." - container.
