‘A Short History of Decay’ Clip | EXCLUSIVE

We have an exclusive clip from A Short History of Decay that features Bryan Greenberg and Kathleen Rose Perkins. On DVD June 10 and now in select theaters, this pitch black comedy follows a struggling writer (Greenberg) who attempts to get his career back on track after watching his ex-girlfriend (Emmanuelle Chriqui) get her first book published. He soon finds himself having to put everything on hold to deal with the declining health of his two parents. Watch as Nathan Fisher forms a connection with one of his parent's friends, after confiding in his true feelings about his now ex-girlfriend.


Nathan Fisher (Bryan Greenberg) can't seem to quite get it together. He's a wannabe writer living in Brooklyn, temping at an ad agency while bouncing from plays to novels to screenplays without ever finishing anything. When his ambitious novelist girlfriend (Emmanuelle Chriqui), about to publish her first book, finally gets fed up and decides to leave him he resolves to get down to some serious work once and for all. But life intervenes. After getting a call that his father has had a stroke, Nathan heads to Florida where he's called upon to deal with his father's failing health and his mother's early Alzheimer's. Nathan gets a crash course in love, loyalty, family, and forgiveness in this dark comedy about stepping up when your parents are going downhill.

A Short History of Decay is available on DVD June 10.

A Short History of Decay was released in 2014.
