With his mother dying of lung cancer, Sal, in his 30’s and with Down Syndrome, embarks on a journey to find his father – a rock band singer that his mother had a one-night stand with… 30 years ago!
SAL is in his 30’s and with Down Syndrome. He lives with his mum SOPHIE who has an aggressive form of lung cancer. She has only weeks to live, and with no living family members left, Sal could become a ward of the state, or homeless. He refuses to become neither. When Sal becomes aware that he was a product of a one‐night stand and that his mum doesn’t remember his name, he plays detective and embarks on a journey to find his unnamed father.
