The Suffering Kind

the suffering kid

The Suffering Kind is a story about Michael Hannan, a sanitation worker in the town of Newburgh, upstate New York, who, recently sober, is getting through the days as best he can. Card games with the local priest, Fr. Jim, are about the height of it now as Michael whiles the hours away, his woman gone though still around, his road getting narrower, his nights longer. Fr Jim is an inner city priest doing what he can for his congregation and keeping an eye on Michaels’s sobriety.  A chance encounter with his past sets Michael off on a journey where the past is like a sad lullaby that haunts him so close it’s all he can hear. Then one morning reality came knocking. Written and directed by Kevin Liddy. Watch the trailer
