Absent : What happens to a family when a father leaves? How are the empty spaces of an absence filled? In 1979, Otto Sinclair flees in the wake of a tragic fire, leaving his family to sort through the ashes. Twenty-eight years later, he comes back to them: his wife, Lenore, a kept woman in mourning with a box of memories in the trunk of her car; his daughter, Ruby, who peoples her world with the imaginary and the unattainable; his son, Gavin, confined in a prison of his own creation; and the ghost of his mother, dead on the third floor of the house he burned down. A single act of desperation can echo for decades. Now, a wounded family struggles to answer one final question: Is it possible to forgive when it's impossible to forget?
