A Broken Man

Waiting to Air - TV movies


Business lawyer, loving father and husband, Vincent Sorrente is a fulfilled man, living the life he always dreamed of. And yet... After a bad encounter with a stranger, he unwittingly takes a date rape drug, and wakes up one morning with contusions on his face and some blood between his legs. Vincent has been raped. Nothing will ever be the same. Wounded and offended, Vincent is drowning. He will have to fight to restore his self-worth and recover his dignity. Who is he now? What kind of a husband and father can he still be? How to face his family, his coworkers, the memory of his abuser? What does it mean to be a man nowadays? And how to feel like a man again?
