What’s a parent to do?
Six-year-old Andrew (Keilan Grace) comes home from school with a drawing he made. His parents, Robert (Patrick Brammall, pictured) and Rachel (Alexa Ashton) aren’t quite sure what to make of the title Andrew gave his drawing. Their conversation continues later that evening, taking a few unexpected turns as they revisit bits of their own lives in an effort to understand and support their son. The result is quite cute and hilariously funny. Definitely a Must See. (dik won the audience award for best short at Frameline37.) Tagline: Don’t take it the wrong way!
