Home » Here Lies a Father

When Ian Daly and his sister arrive for their wayward father’s funeral, a secret that was kept from them their entire lives emerges: their father Thomas abandoned two other families. In the cold, lonely winter landscape of small-town New York, fifteen-year-old Ian sets out alone to learn the truth about his father’s past and the families he left behind. Here Lies a Father examines the long-term effects shameful secrets have on a family, and how difficult it is for a young man to reconstruct his own sense of right and wrong, when every value and moral principle he was ever taught was based on a lie.
