Max’s visit with his grandfather becomes a test of his moral stamina. A past whose effects endure to this day seems to divide them. When his grandfather offers him a substantial inheritance, Max must come to a decision with far-reaching consequences. A film about responsibility and the varying definitions of “decency.”
