Director Statement:

“When I originally wrote “The Wight Christmas” as a feature, it was intended to be a courtroom drama of sorts taken outside of the legal arena and put into the privacy of a family’s living room. It is a cautionary tale of what happens when bereaved individuals decide to take the law into their own hands. One brother is a police officer, another an attorney, a sister who is a social worker, and a baby brother who has been abused by the black sheep of the family whose dysfunction has dominated their lives for far too long.  The film gives a glimpse to the effect childhood trauma has had on all of their lives—the black sheep especially – and raises the question of where the line is drawn between forgiveness and retaliation. This short film is an adaptation of that story, bringing the audience down a dark trail that leads these ordinary people to conclude that murdering their brother is their only means of solace.”
