The revolution starts at home.
Isaac returns home from a stint in the armed forces to discover his suburban family engaged in a war of their own.
His mother, liberated from an abusive marriage, is intent on upending the patriarchy.
His younger sibling is transitioning and on a crusade to dismantle the binary.
Their dominating father, left speechless and passive after a stroke, is floundering in this new reality.
But in this sly, subversive comedy, annihilating the past doesn’t always free you from it.
Hir is pronounced ‘Here’
