Catharsis or The Thing You Should Have Told Me promises to be an intense and awesome experience like no other! Paul and Dennis are attempting to cope with life in the wake of their parent's tragic death, maintain relationships, and hold down jobs, all while dealing with the daily calamities of their tragically depressed little sister. Their odd behavior attracts the attention of a pair of nosey twins (Skye and Guy) who, in their digging, discover an awful truth. A confrontation will test the family's trust, define new boundaries, and expose its dangerous secrets. Some things should stay in the family.
