The Shower

The relationship between a father (75) and his son (43) as seen through an intimate encounter in a shower stall. Due to his illness, the father can no longer wash himself, so his son is forced to wash him. The father’s fear of loneliness and of death, the family’s sense of helplessness, and the unresolved relations between them all disappear in a tender moment of kindness, as the son helps his father in the shower.
