“Closure” is an endearing story which illustrates some of the dilemmas following the end of World War II
Donald Barlow never knew his father; Gordon Devereaux never knew he had a son. Following his mother’s death Donald Barlow decides to find out more about his birth father. He hires investigator Paul Hoogstra who tracks down Gordon Devereaux. The latter refuses to accept any responsibility for the situation.
Donald’s daughter, Claire, is determined to find out more. Despite going to Canada, with her son Gordie, and meeting the Devereauxs, the hope for closure seems as far away as ever. Could Gordie hold the key?
