Uncle Joe

Uncle Joe by Zhen Yee Khor
short film


A father talks about getting drafted to fight in a war when he was still a kid, coming home to find out that everyone thinks that what he did was wrong and shows how even if it’s against all odds, he became a loving father and husband that respects and cherishes all people, especially his gay son.
