Abstract

Brothers create. Brothers destroy. After the death of his brother, Matthew, Eric Welsh is left questioning his place in the world. He's unhappy with his job as an editor at a local news station, he feels out of place in his hometown of Louisville, Kentucky, and he feels a lingering jealousy toward his brother's success as a screenwriter. Something needs to change, But Eric doesn't know how to bring that about. When he begins a search in Chicago to find out more about his brother's life and death, he comes across Matthew's notes for an unfinished screenplay. Eric takes on the project as his own. In the process he recounts his past with Matthew. and begins to see his brother and himself in anew light.
