Synopsis
Four interwoven yet unconnected narratives explore the timeless theme of masculine estrangement and reconciliation. Mourning the death of his mother, Bernie is shocked to discover that the vulgar Russian who showed up at the funeral uninvited is actually his father. A retired music teacher gets a visit from his son, after a seven-year absence, who makes an uncomfortable request that his father may not be able to honor. An accountant wants to announce his engagement, but is embarrassed to introduce his fiancée to his flamboyantly gay, Bollywood choreographer father. And finally, four squabbling brothers gather at the home of their recently deceased father to find out who inherits what in the old man's will, which contains surprises that further ratchet up their sibling rivalry.
