Synopsis: A son realises his father is flawed.
Kids understand more than we estimate them to understand. Paris though immersed in his comics and seemed to be a simple distracted child, he could easily put this father in place when he realized what he had done to him and his mother that night. Being stuck in a car in an unknown place for hours together is traumatic for anyone let alone a child. The irresponsibility of the father is terrible to even read, worst it would be to visualize. How his father over night become yet another human from a super hero stature is the failure of Henry. It is a well written script and has great flow in it. Kudos to the writer!

Despite the dramatic contents of the script, this is a screenplay I feel we can all relate to. It is a story about realising your parents are as fallible and human as anyone else in the world and that, no matter how much it hurts, learning that is an essential part of growing up. I am sure all readers can relate to where the character of Sandy finds himself both at the start and conclusion of the script and the effect the realization has on him.
