24 hours in L.A.; it's raining cats and dogs. Two parallel and intercut stories dramatize men about to die: both are estranged from a grown child, both want to make contact, and neither child wants anything to do with dad. Earl Partridge's son is a charismatic misogynist; Jimmy Gator's daughter is a cokehead and waif. A mild and caring nurse intercedes for Earl, reaching the son; a prayerful and upright beat cop meets the daughter, is attracted to her, and leads her toward a new calm. Meanwhile, guilt consumes Earl's young wife, while two whiz kids, one grown and a loser and the other young and pressured, face their situations. The weather, too, is quirky.

Sethe is stolid and hard working; Denver wants society. Paul D, a former slave who knew Sethe, happens on them and joins the farm and family, but not before the house rattles and pitches, as if spirits reject Paul D's coming. Next, inexplicably, a young woman about Denver's age arrives, behaving in childlike ways, speaking and walking awkwardly, calling herself "Beloved." Who she is, her effect on Sethe, and Paul D's responses propel Sethe into the past and Denver into a new maturity.

Jake O'Neill Robards is the youngest son of two-time, …
Jake O'Neill Robards is the youngest son of two-time, Oscar-winning actor Jason Robards and producer Lois (O'Connor) Robards and the grandson of silent film actor, Jason Robards, Sr. Jake was raised in Southport, Connecticut far from Hollywood but close to New York's Broadway where during Sunday matinees he would watch from the wings as his father performed revivals of The Iceman Cometh, You Can't Take it with You, and Long Day's Journey Into Night. Jake was educated at The Greenwich Country Day School and Greens Farms Academy, where, in 8th grade, he met his future wife - Rachel. At The Hotchkiss School he was twice class president and captain of two varsity sports - soccer and sailing where they were national champions. Initially, Robards had his sights set on law school and a future in government, but his senior year at Georgetown University, where he received a BA in International Relations and a minor in French, his French professor required students to act out parts in Moliere's The School for Wives. Perhaps it was inevitable with his up-bringing, but it was at that moment, that Robards fell in love with acting. After college, Robards briefly attended The American Academy of Dramatic Arts in New York, but he soon focused on New York independent theater playing a wide range of roles: an Australian drug smuggler in Beautiful Souls, a soldier suffering from PTSD in At War and Home Front, a suicidal loaner in The Chechov Dreams, young Adolf Hitler in 5 O'Clock, and most recently starring as a JFK Jr.-like candidate in the Off-Broadway political drama, Promising, which is currently being developed into a film. For years, Jake has been successful at garnering a massive voice-over career, voicing numerous national campaigns including: L'Oreal, Ensure, Robitussin, Dunkin' Doughnuts, USA Network, Advil, and Domino's Pizza to name a few. Robards performed on Broadway with Paul Newman and Jane Curtin in Our Town, which was also filmed for Showtime. Other film & television credits include an assistant ME on Law & Order SVU, lead roles in the unsung independent features Alto and Honeysuckle, and roles in Lucky Them and Somebody's Hero. In late 2016 he moved to Los Angeles to focus more on film and television and immediately booked a recurring role on Showtime's Billions playing Hedge Fund Manager, Michael Arendt. He also will be in the pilot episode of Ryan Murphy's, Feud playing alongside Susan Sarandon and Jessica Lange. He guest stars this season on ABC's Quantico alongside Priyanka Chopra and Blair Underwood. Robards' love of theater extends to his duties as a Board member of Westport Country Playhouse in Westport, Connecticut. His other charity work includes his avid support of NextStep Fitness - a non-profit which provides workout facilities for people living with paralysis. To help them raise over $100,000, last fall Robards cycled from Denver to Los Angeles on the Snow2Sand ride. Robards was married in 2006 to Rachel Bell. They have one son, Jake Jr.
