Dads Dead

Synopsis

Through a series of ghostly reminiscences a young man tries to piece together fragmented moments from the past, memories being triggered by admiration for his best friend Johnno. As the story unfolds, hero worship turns to revulsion, as the web of deception and violence that Johnno creates is revealed, pulling narrator and audience into its destructive wake. Manipulated live-action mutates and combines with ghostly digital animation.
