Quiet Desperation

There is always a breaking point.

Quiet Desperation is the story of 58-year-old Heathcliff Defour, a man fast approaching retirement with a lot of “luggage.” His life is dull and his marriage unfulfilling. For the past 35 years he has been married to Merlin Defour, a controlling, bitter woman who is critical of everything, especially him. Whilst driving Merlin to the market one morning they begin to quarrel. But it is when Heathcliff finally expresses what is really on his mind, he loses more than he is prepared to handle.
