The Old Son
The Old Son

What if your family were immortal except you?

In an alternate universe, 98% of the population are immortals. Immortals look young and charm because they don¡¯t get older in terms of appearance after 25. On the other hand, there is 2% of the mortal population. Mortals are just like us. They become wrinkled as getting older.

Tom, born to be a mortal, doesn¡¯t feel a true love from his parents who are immortal and never age. He lives far away from home until he gets a cancer at 60. Tom, now an elderly mortal man, decides to come back home to reconcile himself with his immortal parents before he dies. But his reconciliation isn¡¯t easy.

The Old Son is based on the short story Deathwatch written by Norman Spinrad and published in Playboy Magazine in 1965. It is about how hard it is to say I love you between family members.

Jong Hwang, who wrote and directed The Old Son, is a young passionate filmmaker, recently graduated from California Institute of the Arts. He studied history at Seoul National University and worked in Korean film industry before coming to CalArts.
