Some things can’t be fixed
Former lawyer Mick is an alcoholic. His wife Lynn is having an affair. Their daughter Lisa is trying to escape. Her boyfriend Pete is consumed by a rage that stems from a dark, untold past. His estranged grandmother, Dora, is succumbing to illness and losing her grip on reality whilst her only friend Ruth is trying to keep it all together. Police officer Jim feels like he’s losing his son. His ex-wife Susan pines for the past whilst their teenage son, Sam, feels confused, rejected and isolated.
Loneliness, violence and tragedy unite these characters as their separate lives interweave; they try their best to move on – to change, to connect, to break the cycles that trap them. But some things can’t be fixed.
The end is inevitable. The date is negotiable.
Tearing himself away from the bedside of his coma-bound wife, a police Sergeant investigates a series of age-related murders, only to discover that time can be far more destructive and cruel than the idealistic killer he pursues…
The past is anything but uniform.
Shortly after an English journalist finds his elderly neighbour suffering a heart attack, he discovers the old man used to be an SS officer. With the sometimes reluctant help of a young French librarian, the journalist begins to investigate the Nazi’s background, culminating in a race against time to reunite him with his estranged daughter – and show her the truth about her father.
