Colonel, for what it means,
I think my father is dead.
I can fully understand that when you haven’t heard from a friend who lives a few blocks away for a long time, you get prepped and plan a visit to the person in question. Just like that.

A personal story told through a first person narrative about unresolved issues from past relationship.
Basically an art house movie with a huge budget.
