Dinner with Dad

"Dinner with Dad" is a holiday short film that takes place around the dinner table as a man, David, and his wife, Rachel, visit his elderly father Robert for Christmas. While David and Rachel are eager to catch up and celebrate the holiday, Robert is only interested in hashing out the transgressions of the past. When Robert is given the chance to remember the past for what it was, he must decide between holding on to his resentment, or letting it go to embrace to future.
