Nov 27 – Dec 15
Trad has the makings of a surrealistic mini-epic voyage. Da is a cantankerous 130 something year-old man lamenting the fact that his much spryer 100 something year-old son Thomas did not provide the family with an offspring to continue the family line. But Thomas has a secret! Many decades years prior, he gave in to a moment of reckless passion that resulted in the very thing that could relieve Da’s despair. The problem is… Thomas has never met his progeny and has no idea where this child could be. So they set out together on a paternal quest that becomes much more than a simple trek to locate down an estranged child of 70 something. The obstacles and characters Da and Thomas encounter on their journey become symbols for life’s challenges, and this whimsical tale – while never taking itself too seriously – delivers a warm reflection on our need to belong.
