A Father Does Something Drastic When His Family Become Strangers To Him

 

Closer Apart SS2

He’s the father, the head of the family. But everyone’s ignoring him.

This could be a picture perfect family: a father and his homely wife, their children, and a sweet granddaughter. But something’s not right.

His family ignores his gestures of concern and love, they are so taken by their worries and busy lives.
