|Project||Happy Birthday Mom!|
The children are busy. The daughter has got divorced and is now taking care of her autistic son. The oldest son has lost his job and is busy finding another job. The youngest son doesn’t have a decent job but manages to get by through sorting mail and working as a chauffeur. Their parents don’t blame their children for not calling or visiting on their mother’s birthday. The father makes a gift of a hamburger to his wife. She had never tasted one before, but enjoys it instead of a birthday cake. The youngest son argues with a customer over money, killing him on his mother’s birthday.
All parents have an unbreakable bond with their children. While some will get divorced and others will lose their jobs, family members club together and try to keep going. Young children have a duty to take care of helpless older parents and older parents have a duty to look after their young children. But nothing in the world goes the way we want it to. Even with wealth, some people can’t afford to take care of their family. They become incapable of duty.
