The Pack is powerful story about a young man who is prosecuting his mother for killing his father via her second-hand smoke. Legally plausible, the story brings to the forefront the complexities and anguish of how any of us can get caught in the cultural and legal shift of our nation.
The Pack brings to the forefront the complexities and anguish of how any of us can get caught in the cultural and legal shift of our nation. The question The Pack catches us all with is: "What if your behavior was legally accepted for dozens of years and all of a sudden it came into question?" In a hand-picked case, an ambitious Assistant District Attorney (Carlos Leon) prosecutes a wife and mother (Lucie Arnaz) for three counts of murder after her forty-seven-year-old husband (Scott Bryce) dies of lung cancer from allegedly breathing her second-hand smoke for thirty years. Mourning the loss of his father, their twenty-four-year-old son (Ryan Homchick) decides to testify against his mother. At first, the jury struggles with what appears to be a ridiculous case, but one juror's doubts force the jury into an intriguing, emotional and complicated choice regarding addiction, loyalty and individual responsibility.
