Doug Merit’s middle name is damage control. Working in public relations for GE, he’s ready for any challenge: a teenaged son who still plays with trains, a thirteen-year-old daughter who hasn’t spoken to him in six months, a first-grader who is a little too devoted to animal rights, and a wife who just might have whispered a month or two ago she didn’t love him. No problem! He’s got it covered.
But the events set in motion on a snowy night will put Doug’s carefully constructed version of reality to the test.
Absurd and profound, Damage Control is a comic rollercoaster ride that explores the moral challenge of work as well as a family’s strange impulse to self-destruct and its ultimate need to come together.
