"I'm telling you. I don't understand what is happening to me."

Just a couple of years ago, Nicolas was a smiling, happy boy. But now, nearly 18 and struggling with his parent's divorce he's the opposite: listless, skipping classes, and lying. He hopes moving in with his father will help; a new school and a chance for a fresh start. But he feels unwanted with his father's new wife and decides that returning to his mother's may be the answer. What happens when the options run out?

Florian Zeller's The Son is a touching portrayal of teenage depression and the effect it has on those around. It doesn't offer solutions but is sure to provoke conversations.
