Film details


Comedy-drama. When prison guard Vince realises that newly transferred inmate Tony is the son he had before his marriage, he decides to bring him home on parole to his family, whilst keeping Tony's connection to the family a secret. Whilst Vince also hides his secret acting ambitions from his wife, who suspects he is having an affair rather than attending a drama workshop, acting partner Molly encourages him to try for a part in a Martin Scorsese film.
