Steve Nye?s quiet life takes an unexpected turn when he receives a call from his mother. His father attacked her and has been committed to an asylum. The doctor says he?s suffering from dementia. But Steve?s father seems so calm, clear-eyed, and lucid when he whispers, ?I killed her?. Is it simply symptom of his father?s delusion and madness?
If only Steve were so lucky?
