Set against the backdrop of the New World Order-the demise of the Soviet Union, the pro-democracy protests at Tiananmen Square and the fall of the Berlin Wall-A Father's Son is a stirring tale of how parent and child can grow far apart, yet remain close through a shared love of Canada's national passion.
Infused with the pop culture that would define a generation, A Father's Son also touches on the universal themes of first loves, betrayal and the struggle for identity. A rich tapestry of voices, A Father's Son is a deeply affecting story about how the anti-heroes in our lives can sometimes be our strongest forces for growth.
