 NICK SANTORE (short documentary) 

 THE PACK:   Nick J. Santore, Jake Zalutsky 

A son (Nick Santore, 26) visits his father (Nick Santore, 53) over a short weekend and reflects upon their relationship and his own identity.



“A quiet exploration of a father and son who share a name, but have drifted apart...it becomes a sneakily poignant documentary about the passage of time and the bad habits we grow into or can’t escape from.”
