Prodigal Father

A documentary by Robert Exley (City University of New York, New York, United States of America)

Prodigal Father follows a filmmaker as he explores the aftermath of his father’s decades-long heroin addiction and violent past. The film looks at how a mother and her eight children survived with a father in-and-out prison. Taking place over 20 years after his father’s last arrest, the filmmaker learns that change is possible, but redemption is not always without regret.
