Additional Info

Stain follows 15-year-old Thomas through his quickly-crumbling life when he finds out that he has gotten a 32-year-old woman pregnant after he lied about his age to her. As he sorts through his own situation he tries to ask his parents why they divorced and how their marraige ended up the way it did. Family secrets are only kept at bay for so long in this darkly comic piece about the complexities of family, sex, andrelationships.
