If following your heart tears your family apart, would you... could you...?
It might be the fall of 2019 everywhere else, but in the Colangelo home, it’s 1985. At least, according to 38 year-year-old, Vic Colangelo.
Vic's been in charge of his two younger siblings for the past seventeen years, it’s the only identity he knows. Victoria 23, a dancer with the essence of an ingenue and a the heart of tiger, and Danny 22, a future accountant with a poet’s soul. Now that they’re ready to go out on the own, a conflict over Danny’s future put Vic and Victoria at odds and Danny in the crossfire.
His oppressive control, albeit heartfelt, constantly puts Vic at odds with Victoria. Victoria carries the essence of an ingenue and has a heart of a tiger!
This recent escalated “family feud” between Vic and Victoria puts Danny, a future accountant with the soul of an artist/poet, in the crossfire.
Danny plays peacemaker, as if a child between opposing parents, trying to avoid the land mines, but that has a cost. Like any conflict, sooner or later truths that are repressed, which long to emerge, often need to explode to cause change.
