Synopsis: A testament to the power of love, “Bad Hurt” chronicles a family’s hopeful battle to stay together as personal demons and destructive secrets threaten to rip them apart.
Elaine Kendall, a determined Staten Island, NY housewife, fights to keep her family together in the face of growing chaos.
A once passionate love affair with her husband Ed, a proud Vietnam veteran, is evaporating after many years of unspoken regrets. Together, they struggle to make sense of the blossoming romance between their adult, mentally challenged daughter and a provocative co- worker.
Meanwhile, their patriotic eldest son fights to overcome physical and psychological scars from serving in the Gulf War in Iraq. Their youngest son lives in the shadow of his brother’s accomplishments, wishing nothing more than to carve out his own place in his father’s heart.
“Downbeat and dogged in its conviction, the movie strikes eccentric, volatile emotional notes without a second thought.” – Wall Street Journal
