Synopsis by Alice Day
In this amusing, yet poignant program, a teenaged boy is waiting for his father to come home and discover his terrible misdeed. He has secretly taken out his dad's prized Jaguar convertible, and now there is a noticeable scratch in its otherwise flawless finish. While he waits, he delivers an adolescent's lament about the shortcomings of his parents, and his inability to communicate with his father. Despite the humor, a thread of sadness runs through Something to Cry About, when he reveals that he does not speak up in class, and that he is under the care of a therapist.
