    'I wanna toast to the past of this family, when there were no Prozacs to make our father such a good man.'

    December 1964. Brooklyn. Rocco Lazzarra returns home from a two year spell in a psychiatric hospital, to his Sicilian wife Filumena and their two grown sons. Bringing with him a small orchard of snow white orchids, apparently a transformed man, he seeks to repair the raw emotional wounds that still sting from a previous life of silence, repression and domestic violence.

    As tensions rise, each character is forced to confront the shattered past of the family in order to push through towards a more hopeful future. Hope and resentment, love and hate collide in this heartrending, tender drama, that reaches towards recovery from a past that threatens to overwhelm all.
