Synopsis of Mercy
Mercy is the story of Robert, an ailing retiree who hopes to make amends with his estranged son, Nicolas, after the death of Robert’s wife/Nicolas’s mom. With the help of his daughter-in-law, Robert sets out on a journey to reconnect with his family, but his stubbornness keeps him from apologizing for the mistakes of his past and the circumstances surrounding his wife’s death. Will Robert’s surprise appearance be enough for Nicolas to forgive his father?
