Description: "Familiar Strangers" is an off beat--funny--heartfelt story of a family negotiating the changing relationships between parents and children, especially as those children grow into adulthood. It follows the Worthingtons through a four-day Thanksgiving gathering. Brian, who moved away and kept his distance for the past several years, is reluctantly returning carrying the baggage of unresolved conflict with his father Frank. Frank feels he has lost the ability to connect with his maturing children, and has replaced them with his pets, new children "who never have to grow up." Through conflict, ritual and communication, the Worthington family strives to find the friendship and love we all hope can exist between parents and their adult children.
