The Screen Guide

THE PRODIGAL SON is the emotional story of a gay man in his forties who is reunited with his traditional Macedonian family after being estranged from his father for 15 years. The documentary explores how first-generation migrant parents have struggled to come to terms with their son's sexuality. When Ted came out as gay, his mother Ljubica insisted it was a passing phase and his father Alex refused to speak to him. Fifteen years passed with no communication between father and son - until Alex discovered he was suffering from a serious illness.
