The Crack (trailer)

Full length drama. Phil Vasili (2012)

A father/son odyssey. Simeon French lives a double life: machismo labourer in his dad Billy’s building firm by day, coke fuelled cross-dressing diarist through the night. Only his grounded girlfriend Sarah keeps his head from exploding. 

However Billy’s misguided generosity in employing local waifs and strays and Simeon’s subsequent muleing for the manor’s public school drug baron, Belinda, lays bare the irrepressible contradictions in Simeon’s life.

Despite his own world caving in Billy conjures an imaginative solution to his son’s dilemmas in an attempt to rekindle some peace and harmony in Simeon’s life.
