'The story follows a man who returns home to discover a long-buried family secret, and whose attempts to put things right threaten the lives of those he left home years before.' (Production summary)
Adapted from Simon Stone's Belvoir St production of The Wild Duck. According to an interview with Stone:
It’s kind of a third degree of separation from the source material… It’s a very different story from the story people are seeing on stage…The film has an intricate detail to it, a social fabric, that I kind of essentially in the first place removed from Ibsen’s play to just focus on the humans.
