“The Note” tells a story about redemption, centering around Lars a middle-aged alcoholic, who through his addiction has lost everything, most importantly his wife and son. Now he carries around ‘The Note', a constant reminder of his childhood in which he was subjected to sexual abuse at the hands of a Christian Brother. Day by day he finds solace in the bottle as he quietly observes from a distance his son, now a young boy, longing for the life he’s thrown away
