(2011)

Bill and Kate hopelessly try to find some hint of an explanation after finding out that their only son committed a mass shooting at his university before taking his own life.

Their already strained marriage is tested as they realize all they have left with each other is their shared grief and confusion -- and the unfortunate legacy of their son. This life-altering event forces Bill and Kate to face their feelings of guilt, rage, blame, self-discovery -- and ultimately hope -- so that they can finally see each other and their chance for happiness again with clear eyes.
