The Prodigal Son tells the emotional story of, Ted, a gay man in his 40s who is reunited with his traditional, Macedonian family after being estranged from them for the 15 years since he came out. His father, Alexo, has refused to accept that Ted is gay. He insists that "Woman and man are meant to be together. Not man and man...Nature is nature. Even animals know who is male and who is female, but my son doesn't know what he is."
