Details

We follow Strauss as he explores his startling past—collision, funeral, the queasy drama of a high-stakes court case—and what starts as a personal tale of a tragic event opens into the story of how to live with a very hard fact: we can try our human best in the crucial moment, and it might not be good enough.

Half a Life is a nakedly honest, ultimately hopeful examination of guilt, responsibility, and living with the past.
