Absent father: Andrew and Wendy

Duration: 03:19 minutes

Mother and son talk about the pain Andrew still feels because his dad chose drink rather than him. As an adult the loss of his violent father has left him struggling to cope with his own identity, but he now bravely faces the memory of his father in an attempt to understand his own depression. It reveals the guilt and confusion that comes with a child's perspective on adult behaviour - and continues into adult life.
