The Son Rises in the East will challenge everything you think you understand about the the effects of fatherhood – or the lack thereof – on the modern family and society through the eyes of one family. The Cunningham’s are determined to find balance and happiness in the years following the death of their patriarch but can’t escape the demons that haunt them as they struggle to raise two generations of sons without fathers in their lives. This film will take the viewer through a range of feelings and emotions – joy, humor, suspense, pain, sadness, revenge – this film has it all. But more importantly, it achieves the goal of leaving the viewer with an unforgettable respect for the human experience, and for the underestimated value of good people. I hope you truly enjoy my film. May it leave your heart and mind forever changed.
