In My Parents' Basement is an intense and revealing one-hour documentary that explores, with depth and compassion, the stories of three adult children who have returned to their parents' home to live. As we watch each of the subjects and their families grapple with living together, future dreams, past failures and the present struggles of daily life are captured in close-up over a nine-month period of time. Through conversations, anecdotes, arguments, and unpredictable emotional highs and lows, In My Parents' Basement sheds light on the parent/(adult) child bond and offers insight into the myriad of issues triggered by an adult family living together, once again.

Awards: Silver Remi Award, Documentary Category from WorldFest Houston, 2002
