“If one does not know to which port one is sailing, no wind is favorable.” - Seneca
Derrick Kelley's life was going according to plan, until one evening, walking home together with his wife Emma and young son Adam, a block from his Manhattan apartment, a tragic wreck steals them away leaving him instantly and utterly alone.
World upended, Derrick vacillates between a wish to persevere and succumbing to the allure of rage-fueled revenge; placing trust in his family to help him reestablish a place in the world or striking out on his own and attempting to will the demons away.
Emma and Adam is a story of believing in the compassion of others and reconciling justified anger. Which way do we go when direction loses all meaning? How do we find it in our hearts to forgive when forgiveness is the only impermissible option?
