We Need to Talk About Dad

The Johnsons had twenty years of happy marriage. Then one day Nick Johnson told his wife he had a surprise for her, led her blindfolded into the garden, and committed an awful act of violence. Their son Henry, who was just 16 at the time, became a witness to the crime.

We Need to Talk About Dad meets the Johnsons as they reunite for Christmas, fulfilling the dreams of the youngest son Felix who - until now - had been sheltered from the events of that day.
