Synopsis: ‘Inspired by his own life experiences, actor/director/writer Phillip Irwin Cooper tells a story of a son’s return home to Alabama, where he is faced with caring for his ill mother (Mariette Hartley) and reconciling with his supportive father (John Heard) while also coming out later in life and discovering romantic feelings for a childhood friend from a life he left behind in the deep South.
Featuring nuanced performances from two American acting icons – Mariette Hartley & John Heard as parents coming to terms with gracefully growing older and reconciling family expectations with the complications of real life. COUNTING FOR THUNDER is an original and heartfelt look at Southern family culture and the unique experience of finding your voice and coming out later in life.’
