Dr. Steven Murphy is a renowned cardiovascular surgeon who presides over a spotless household with his wife and two children. Lurking at the margins of his idyllic suburban existence is Martin, a fatherless teen who insinuates himself into the doctor's life in gradually unsettling ways.

Character’s Quotes

• You have beautiful hands. I never noticed before. Everyone’s been telling me lately what beautiful hands you have and now I can see for myself, nice and clean. But so what if they’re beautiful? They’re lifeless. Sometimes Steven, you’re just an incompetent man who goes on and on saying stupid things like, “Let’s do a scan. Let’s do an ultrasound. Let’s wear brown socks. Let’s make mashed potatoes. Let’s go to the beach house.”
