Piece Description

Intro and Outro

INTRO:

Andrea Chase takes you Behind the Scenes of IN THE FAMILY with writer/director/co-star Patrick Wang. IN THE FAMILY is film about justice, family, and what’s worth giving up in order to get what you want. Wang plays Joey, who loses his partner, Cody, and then finds himself without legal recourse when Cody’s family takes custody of Cody’s son, Chip, whom Joey has raised with Cody almost since birth. The tangled emotional battle that follows finds Joey on the wrong side of the law, but not of justice, as he finds a lawyer who forces him to re-evaluate his position by asking three key questions. The film co-stars stars Trevor St. John, Sebastian Brodziak (Banes?), Peter Herman, Kelly McAndrew, Park Overall, Elsa Davis, Elaine Bromka, and Brian Murray. Wang directed from his own script and it is his directorial debut.
