“You should have told me. I only cooked for six,” said Adam, when he saw that his brother Carl had brought home a boyfriend for the Christmas family dinner.
Adam couldn’t help his hostility. Carl was never around, especially when they needed him. And now after a long absence, he was back, but with plans to go away soon again.
While Carl was nursing his heart from an earlier break-up, Adam’s boyfriend had broken up with him too.
Their father needed round-the-clock care, and Adam didn’t have a choice but to devote his entire life to take care of the family.
Adam felt betrayed by his older brother’s absence.
A fire led to a confrontation, and emotions were let loose.
Can the brothers ever reconcile?
