We Need To Kill Your Father


Writer/Director, Harry Hitchens


A bookworm and his mother, strangers to criminal life, embark on a plot to kill the father who sexually abused him as a child.

Joe McCaw cannot escape his fragmented memories of being sexually abused as a child by his father and another, unknown perpetrator. When he finally tells his charming and devoted mother, Sharon, she expresses the rage Joe couldn’t access alone. Together, in the absence of any formal justice, they decide to take matters into their own hands. A spirited, poignant tale which finds light in the darkest of places, WE NEED TO KILL YOUR FATHER represents the untold lived experience of millions of male survivors: mastering rage, exposing betrayal and the seemingly endless search for peace.
