Rating:
PG-13

Regarding Henry is a drama centered around a calloused and embittered man who must face his emotional problems after a severe physical injury. Henry is a distant husband and father to his wife and child. He gives the impression he is an all around family man, involved in his daughter's life and in love with his wife. But, in reality, Henry buries himself in work day and night without much care for his family. All of that changes when he stumbles into a robbery at a convenience store one night and gets shot in the head. After narrowly escaping death, Henry takes a new perspective on life. As he recovers at home, he forms new bonds with his wife and daughter. In the end, Henry is a reinvented man full of compassion, love and understanding.
