“Michael Robb is tending his ageing, ailing father. Begrudging obligation is part of the round of things until one day he makes an awesome erotic discovery.
What follows is a story about relationships between men and their fathers, fathers and daughters, old men and young girls. The eventual trial of Old Robb precipitates a public grappling with desires that are taboo and wishes that are often vindictive. We are forced to approach ‘the floor of the jungle, the leeches and damp air’ of the liaison between the accused and his alleged victims.”
