Compound Fracture

Synopsis: Michael left home when he was a teenager and never looked back. Now, after the death of his sister, Chloe, he's returning home with his fiancee Juliette and his angst ridden nephew Brandon. On arrival, they realize that home isn't exactly what it used to be. With high walls surrounding the house and security cameras in every nook and cranny it's more of a military compound than anything else. Enter Gary, Michael's estranged father who, while happy to be reunited with his son and grandson, seems more distracted by other things. As the strange family reunion commences, an uninvited guest shows up and we learn bits and pieces about the real reason behind Chloe's death and why Brandon is so closed off from Michael. This fractured family will have to come together to fight the ghosts of their pasts and make it out alive!

From the dawn of time,

the Wolff sen family

has always taken the idea

of the pack very seriously.

Rituals of binding members

together are bloody and sacred.

But more unforgiving are

the ones who break that bond.

All that matters is

who is in the family...

and who is out.

My father has always been

a fervent believer

in the family lore.

You are part of the family.

My family!

Now hold still, son.

Now and forever,

I bind you to the wolf!

He was a very hard man

to live with.

You don't just walk away

from being a Wolff sen,

yet twenty years ago,

that's just what I did.

And now I have to go home.

We about done here?

That storm's getting close.

That's very funny, Michael,

because from the amount of help

that you offered,

I thought you wanted to get wet.

I don't know the first thing

about fixin' stuff.

Only breaking it.

I know.

I told you this trip

was a shitty idea.

Hey, I take no responsibility

for that.

I don't know what happened.

And, Brandon, no one asked you.

I cannot get in here and get

enough leverage on this wrench.

Hey, bring your big man arms

over here.

Didn't you just mention

I was good at breaking stuff?

I know. Sometimes you're good

in a clinch.

Come on.

I just...

I need you to just really

tighten that right there.

- Okay, I got it.

- And we should be good.

I don't know how that

even came off.

The tension rod was still on.


What are you lookin' at?

I did it right, right?

Yeah, I think so.

Can I have my ring back?

That was romantic.

I'm gonna piss.


Hey, kiddo.

Uncle Michael?


Don't be so nervous.

I'm not nervous.

I just don't understand

why this is

so important to you.

It's your family, Michael.

My family is not like yours.

Doesn't matter.

- Family's family.

- Right.

'Cause you're the one who said,

"He's your nephew, Michael.

You gotta take him in."


You were right.

It's only one weekend.

We can make it

through one weekend.

- I'm trying to be supportive.

- "Go or I'm leaving."

That's pretty much

what you said.

And it seems like you're

real eager to make nice

with the old fart that holds

the family purse strings.

Jesus, Brandon,

what did you do?


I didn't do anything.

- Let me look at that.

- Hey, don't... don't touch me.

Brandon, let her

take a look at it.

It was a tree branch,

all right?

I said I'm fine.

I don't need you playing mom.

Let's go.

I just want you to know

that your little trust fund

has nothing to do

with how I feel.

It's the only reason

I stick around.

Jesus, these potholes!

The more you hit,

the more points you get.

- So you're trying to hit them?

- Yep!

I'm a good driver.

Welcome to the Wolff sen

family compound.

You grew up here?


That's a little more

high-tech than I remember,

but just as homey.

It's beautiful grounds,

but what's with

all the security?

What's he so afraid of?

Being alone.

Oh, he's been busy.


What the hell?


God damn.

Well, we're here.

Get ready for

a fun-filled weekend.

That must be Anabelle.

How'd you get in here?

You need to leave!

- Get off my property!

- Gary, I let them in.

Calm down.

Go say hello to your son, Gary.


It's Michael.

My boy.

Is that you?

Look at you.

I'm sorry.

For everything.

But you're here now,

and we're all together.

You and me and Chloe.

That's Juliette, Dad,

my girlfriend.

Your fiancee, actually.

It's nice to meet you.

Mint. They say if you

keep it in your pocket...

It's just a superstition.

But if you're gonna be

part of the family,

we'll want to take care of you.
