When Don’s beloved vintage bicycle—a gift from his now-estranged father—is stolen off its rack, his carefully-managed life is thrown into chaos. As he sets out to recover the stolen bicycle, he finds himself drawn into a cycle of truth and deception, giving and forgiving, in which he is forced to confront his troubled relationship with his wayward father.
Cycle Vérité, which was itself created by a father (writer/director) and son (editor/producer) team, explores the paradoxes of forgiveness, and how familial wounds can echo across generations.
