  • “Why do these things always happen to Daddy?” Edie (Audrey Scott) asks her mother Annie (Melanie Lynskey), who replies, “Because he doesn’t pay attention.” Otto Wall (Paul Schneider) has been injured in an ATV accident; there’s a chance he could lose his foot, but doesn’t seem too concerned. He’s an affable, easygoing guy who thinks he has his life all figured out. Imagine his shock when Annie – or rather, her therapist (Celia Weston) announces the marriage is over and her decision to divorce him is not open for discussion.

    Annie’s unhappiness is deep-rooted and the break a long time coming though Otto has clearly been oblivious to the warning signs. “We don’t even fight,” he exclaims, still trying to comprehend the situation. “Exactly,” Annie responds before telling him to move out. Otto finds himself adrift in the dating pool though is soon entangled with a trio of blondes who want mo more than no strings attached sex. Fascinated by this whole new world of women – “It was not like this when I was single.” – he attempts to find his bearings, fumbling and stumbling his way into accepting his responsibilities as a father and acknowledging his part for the failure of his marriage.
