Echoes of the Unknown

The sins of a father becomes the sins of a son. Having came home from the hospital following his son's death, a man tries and fails in getting in contact with his father. Unable to do this, he leaves a message telling his estranged father what has happened and how his lacking of poor childhood lead to this man making decisions that he now regrets; decisions that made him inadvertently ignore the suffering of his own son in order to prove to himself that he could be a better father than his own.
