A Family Man

Inspired by a true story and set in 1975 in a small northern mining town, A Family Man is a tale of winners and losers, when a man who schemes on a grand scale, but lives small, makes a risky leap. Sam (Colin Salmon), a hard-drinking father of three, ex-Navy man, ex-miner, and soon to be ex-husband, takes to gambling to bankroll his crazy plan to open a drive-in theatre in Africa. Equally desperate to support his family and keep his dream alive, we watch as Sam's life spirals out of control in a show-down with a deadly Detroit card shark. It's a tour-de force performance that keeps you at the edge of your seat and rooting for the man who would win his dreams or lose it all.
