Synopsis

Catatonically unhappy with his family life, a young man named Peter Foster undergoes video therapy with his parents. One day, while studying tapes at the hospital, he sees the tapes of an Armenian family who feel guilty about surrendering their own son, while still an infant, to a foster home. Peter decides to present himself to this family as their lost son, to finally act out a role different from the one assigned to him in his own life.
