Abstract:

This film explores the stories of three adult children who have returned to their parents' home to live. Each of the subjects and their families grapple with living together. Future dreams, past failures and the present struggles of daily life are captured in close-up over a nine-month period of time. Through conversations, anecdotes, arguments and unpredictable emotional highs and lows, it sheds light on the myriad of issues triggered by adult children moving back in with their parents. We meet Bob, an articulate 34-year-old who has lived with his parents for two years and shows no signs of moving out. He struggles with depression, dislikes sunlight, and can't seem to hold down a job. Nancy, at age 42, was kicked out of her boyfriend's apartment and can't afford a place of her own. She shares the basement with her grandmother, while trying to get her pet grooming business off the ground. Denise and David are a young married couple. They work full time, but have moved in with Denise's parents to save money for a house. In My Parents' Basement reflects a growing phenomenon in today's society, and as the documentary unfolds, it becomes painfully clear that being a parent or a child is a lifelong calling that requires patience, compassion, and strength.
