Jackie and Contessa are far from the typical American family. One black, one Jewish, and both women, they have overcome years of alcoholism and self-doubt to remain loving partners. But when their absent daughter Garance is accused of cannibalism, their Gramercy Park apartment becomes a center of chaos. The phone rings relentlessly with bigoted threats, Contessa’s long-lost brother mysteriously reappears, and to top it all off, the alleged cannibal makes a grand entrance. Bring Us The Head Of Your Daughter is a biting examination of an unconventional family and the outermost limits of familial love.
