The Bridge reveals the ripple effect of a young man’s death on a rural town and on a family forced to face the things they’ve ignored for too long – a father grieving the loss of his land, – a mother struggling with guilt, – a son dealing with the slow disintegration of his family, the finality of death, the pressures of adolescence and the hard truths we must face if we are to embrace our own future.
