Strangers on Hollow Hill

It’s 1988. Brian returns home from his freshman year at college to find that so much has changed since he was last home at Christmas: his mother left his father, his father’s mistress moved into the house, and the place has been redecorated beyond his recognition. His eccentric, artsy friends, too, seem so very different from when he last saw them.
As Brian interacts with the people in his life – both old and new – he begins to understand that very little has changed around him, but that he himself has become a new person with new perspectives. In doing so, he begins to come to terms with who his friends really are, with the strange woman who is part of his father’s life, and with his strained relationship with his mother and father. Most significantly, Brian begins to come to terms with himself.
