George has waited 40 years to meet the jerk who abandoned him as a two-year-old.  Except when the phone finally rings, it's from a hospital in Vancouver.  Dad's had a stroke, and George is the only family member they could reach.  Putting his own life on hold for this man is not something George ever intended to do, but something draws him in. The story of fathers and sons and how a funny reconciliation happened on the way to getting even.

Running time:   2 hours, 20 minutes, one intermission.
