Falling is an intimate family drama that follows John Petersen (Viggo Mortensen), who lives with his partner, Eric (Terry Chen), and their adopted daughter, Monica, in Southern California. His father, Willis (Lance Henriksen), is a farmer whose attitudes and behaviour belong to a far more traditional era and family model. When Willis travels to Los Angeles for an indefinite stay with John’s family in order to search for a place to retire as he deals with memory loss, these two very different worlds collide.
Writer/ Director: Viggo Mortensen
