Happy Endings


A complex ensemble piece with three interlocking storylines, touching on incest, gay relationships, and paternity. We kick off with two adopted siblings having sex, resulting in a son given up for adoption. Years later, she's an abortion consultant, having an affair with a masseur. She agrees to take part in a documentary about herself in the hope of finding her son. Meanwhile, the boy's dad turned gay and runs a restaurant. One of his staff, also gay, finds himself being blackmailed by a manipulative woman.
