But inwardly he’s suffocating, and eventually he snaps and goes into hiding in his garage attic leaving his family to wonder what happened to him. He observes them from his window – an outsider spying in on his own life – as the days of exile stretch into months. Is it possible to go back to the way things were?
An unhappy father and lawyer quits his suburban life and vanishes into the attic above his garage, where he watches his family move on without him.
